From 18:00pm to 19:30pm
This year, a selection of the University’s esteemed academics turn their attention and research to address one of the key Global Challenges concerning our planet – The Age of the Digital Revolution, and whether we are now beyond a point of good or evil? For more information, free tickets and a complimentary reception, please register for the series via: brunel.ac.uk/PublicLectures Join the conversation ...
Three key themes will be explored over the first 3 Wednesday evenings of February, venturing through landscapes of our environments, communities and challenges facing the “individual”. Pressing down into topics surrounding our personal data and protection, the growing concern and quest for global food sustainability, enhancing experiences of aging in a digital age, the corrosive divisions created by constructed digitalised “global communities”, and whether our digital personalities and gender are now a true interface for the “real thing”.
Wednesday 6: Can smart technologies and digital systems overcome global challenges? Fostering Digital Development
Wednesday 13: What influence does the Digital Era have on our appearance and place in society? Enhancing Digital Wellbeing
Wednesday 20: Can we protect our privacy and rights in a digital world? Protecting Digital Privacy
There will be plenty of time for Questions & Answers, followed by a networking reception. It will be my pleasure for you to join us at Brunel at one – if not all – of the lectures, which, once again, promises to be yet another electrifying series.
