Digital Day Switzerland: A human-centred digital transformation

03 September 2019

Digital Day

 

We are increasingly reliant on smartphones, smart watches and other interconnected devices which influence nearly every aspect of our life:  our relationship with ourselves and others, our private, public and professional lives.

The Swiss Digital Day will take place on 3 September 2019 in Switzerland as a day of national dialogue on opportunities and challenges related to digital transformation. Initiatives of Change (IofC) Switzerland is aware of the historical opportunity to influence the impact of new technologies for the common good.

In collaboration with Digital Switzerland and its partners, the IofC team will lead an interactive session in Geneva based on a fictional character named "Fabrice" and his attitude towards new technologies, allowing a dialogue to be launched between experts and participants on opportunities offered by new technologies and related risk management.

 

When : 3 September 2019 16 :00-17 :00

Where : Uni Mail, Bâtiment Uni-Mail, Bd du Pont-d'Arve 40, 1205 Geneva
