Description

Join us in this webinar where we explore with David Wood of the London Futurists how politics will change in the digital age and the impact this will have on our democracy.

Many other fields of life have been positively transformed by application of technological innovations. What prevents politics from benefiting in a similar way from "politech" (technology for a better politics)?

This webinar looks at two overlapping topics:

  • The possibility for near-future technologies to help save present-day politics from the increasingly bitter pressures it faces;

  • And the need for present-day politicians to pay closer attention to the capabilities of near-future technologies before these accelerating capabilities generate even tougher social problems.

The presenter at the webinar will be David Wood, Chair of London Futurists, and Executive Director of the technoprogressive think-tank Transpolitica.

David will explain his view that a technoprogressive stance can enable a fruitful cooperation between many different strands of politics. The future of politics will increasingly feature debates over how best to steer technology.

This webinar aims to provide foresight into these emerging debates.
