Description

What would it take to make digital fair?

Doteveryone is working on building a set of practical standards for ethical digital products – a kind of fair trade for digital. We'll explain why we think it's important and what we've done so far. We'll also hear from Co-op, about how they're navigating the ethical challenges of the digital world.

Most importantly, we want you to join the conversation and tell us what the barriers are for digital businesses and consumers in adopting ethical digital standards.

Agenda:

5pm – Light refreshments

5:15pm – Presentations

6:00pm – Panel discussion/Q&A

6:30pm – Drinks and audience participation
