Digital Future Society is organizing a top-notch hybrid event that will take place within the MWC Barcelona 2021, in collaboration with the Secretary of State for Digitalization & Artificial Intelligence (SEDIA), from the Government of Spain. The event aims to present possible courses of action to solve the great challenges that have arisen this digital emergency from a humanist perspective. The current global crisis –involving health, societal and economic matters- has raised profound lines of questioning on the future of humanity in the digital era. Technology is driving disruptions, and public and private actors need to understand the meaning and consequences of these changes, and build effective dialogues to set new rules, frameworks, and aspirations to secure that technology works for people. These actions and priorities need to rely on an accurate understanding on the implications of the digital era for the future of humanity. The event gathers key stakeholders from public administration, private sector, top-leading thinkers and activists, as the best way to work together on building a more sustainable, equitable and inclusive digital agenda.
