Changing Tech for Good
At our April event, we’ll talk about changing tech for good.
We’ve invited the folks behind social learning network Tethix to speak about their initiatives that empower people to create more ethical and responsible technology aligned to the public interest.
Alja and Mat from Tethix have been exploring how to help people get the skills needed to create better tech futures. Having explored lots of different approaches over the past decade they are now working to bring something unique to life.
In this community event they’ll talk about co-design, collaborative learning in tech ethics, and the pilots they have started running at Tethix to bring moral imagination, play and real skills to people creating technologies today.
