*SPECIAL TIME OF 12:30PM AEDT*
This week, as part of the 2022 NetThing Internet Governance Conference, Burning Platforms will ask - "Do we need to build our resilience against a worsening tech world, or should we design a better one?"
As the tech harms pile up and change us and our society, we deep dive into a new book 'Disconnect - why we get pushed to extremes online and how to stop it' which showcases online conspiracy theorists, freedom fighters, trolls, screen addicts and more and we will unpack whether our current tech landscape is inevitable or if there's a better way forward.
With our panellists:
- Peter Lewis, Director of The Australia Institute’s Centre for Responsible Technology
- Dan Stinton, Managing Director of Guardian Australia
- Carla Wilshire, Founder of Centre for Digital Wellbeing
And special guest:
- Jordan Guiao, Author of new book 'Disconnect - why we get pushed to extremes online and how to stop it'
RSVP with your details and you will receive an email confirmation with instructions on how to join on Friday
