Event description

Description

A partnership project between the local community in Seacroft, mhabitat and the LS14 Trust.

Spend an hour in the company of a group of local young people from Seacroft as they reflect on what they have learnt from their first footsteps into the world of coding and share their ideas about how digital technology could make their community an even better place to live for young people.

This is an interactive session with a chance to chat with the young people and ask them some questions about this project but be aware they will almost certainly have some questions for you too.


This informal event will be followed by networking.



100% Digital Leeds is the health and care theme of the Leeds Digital Festival #LDF19.

Curated by mHabitat on behalf of the city, 100% Digital Leeds bring together international, national and local perspectives on current digital themes in health and care. From the ethics of AI, through to how we use personal data and the impact of social media on vulnerable teens, our events aim to stimulate debate and shine a light on the great stuff happening in our city. We are delighted to have BJSS as our headline sponsor at #LDF19 and we are also grateful to our individual event sponsors in helping make #100DigitalLeeds #LDF19 happen.

Most of our #100DigitalLeeds events will be run from the recently launched Co>Space North – a collaboration and co-working space on the fifth floor of Platform in the heart of the city. At Co>Space North we are creating a community of makers and doers passionate about digital health and tech for good. Anyone signing up to be a member of Co>Space North during the two week festival period gets their first month membership for free! Email us at cospacenorth@wearemhabitat.com to find out more and get involved.

Our city’s Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2016-2021 sets out a clear vision that ‘Leeds will be a healthy and caring city for all ages, where people who are the poorest improve their health the fastest’. This includes maximising the benefits from information and technology as a key priority. The health and wellbeing strand of the Digital Festival is a celebration of the diverse and innovative work taking place to help us achieve our shared, bold ambition for Leeds to be the best city for health and wellbeing.LCC Health and wellbeing
