Conversing with nature: how to move from ‘ego’ to ‘eco’ in the digital age
With Jeremy Lent and Bonnitta Roy
Thursday, 27 May 2021 at 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM BST
How do we develop digital technologies in ways which bring out the best in our humanity? How, meanwhile, do we repair our relationship with the natural world?
In this session, we will explore the intersection of these two questions, so often treated as separate. In which ways can our gadgets, social platforms and breakthroughs in AI help us to care for the natural world? How can we converse with nature and appreciate an intelligence greater than our own? Can technology serve us in shifting our mindsets from ‘ego’ to ‘eco’?
Join us and share your thoughts about these issues as Dan Nixon (Perspectiva) is joined in conversation by Jeremy Lent and Bonnitta Roy.
