Movements and Emerging Technologies

 

In the next 15 years, how will technologies change the terrain for social movements? Synthetic biology, advanced robotics, and other sophisticated processes are changing — and promising to change more drastically — how work is done, how goods are manufactured and how food is produced and consumed. Today, what do social movements fighting for climate justice or food sovereignty need to know to anticipate and shape the use of technologies that will drive major shifts in power and production relations?

Each of the Movements and Emerging Technologies dialogues will feature exchanges between practitioners in social movements and experts in emerging technologies. Each dialogue will be based around the guests imaginings of how things could look in 15 years, and an explorations of the implications for current organizing.
