Event description

Description

Let’s do this, New York. ThinkNation empowers young people to ask BIG questions. And now we’re crossing the Atlantic to hear from YOU.

We will be holding two very special collaborative idea workshops at TechHub NYC on Saturday May 19 and Saturday May 20, alongside expert mentors from the tech world.

Aged 14-24? We need YOU to help shape the BIGGEST tech questions of our time.

It’s time to break down the barriers, challenge new ideas and think for the future. It's even time to get philosophical! We want to hear YOUR ideas and views on the BIG issues that are affecting, and will affect, YOU:

  • Artificial Intelligence; ethics, opportunities, implications... and global security
  • Technology vs. The Brain: Are YOU the cyborg generation?
  • Defend or destroy? How the environment is being affected by technology
  • Surveillance and YOUR privacy: What price is 'free'?
  • Enhanced and longer life expectancy with, and as a result of, technology

Got the passion to learn and make your voice heard? Then you’re already ready to be a ThinkNation trailblazer.

You don’t need to have ANY deep knowledge about these issues – just the curiosity to ask the questions you really want to know.

We’re open to everyone!

Choose from ONE of two sessions:

- Saturday 19th May – 11:30am-3pm

OR

- Saturday 20th May – 11:30am-3pm

FOOD AND REFRESHMENTS PROVIDED + FREE RETURN METRO TRAVEL INCLUDED WITHIN THE FIVE BOROUGHS.

Safeguarding: NYC Education Department registered teachers will be in attendance at all times for safeguarding.
