Reconquer Democracy

In this session, we want to explore the multifaceted impact of technology on the way we keep ourselves informed, the way we shape our opinions or, maybe, in which way they are being shaped in a world where there is a more and more segmented , sometimes even segregated „information sphere“. While the global connectivity of the internet promised us a world that could be more democratic, more free, more informed – with the knowledge of the world at our fingertips – the opposite seems to be the case: populism, fake news, hate speech are symptoms of a societal change that is driven by the transformative power of accelerated technology? Or what is behind it? How can we tackle it? What’s the role of political leaders, of journalists, of entrepreneurs and activists? How can we bridge the (information) gap between communities drifting further apart? These are some of the big questions of our time.
