Everything is Connected, Panel Discussion
Panel Discussion, Elevate Festival, 2014
In this panel conversation the various topical threads of Elevate's discourse programme will be brought together. Starting with an analysis of the current situation, tangible paths into a solidary future will be discussed. Representatives of different perspectives will talk about the required socio-ecological change, the possible makeup of future societies, and the necessary steps to create them.
Amy Goodman is concerned with the role of the media in social transformation, Nafeez Ahmed has a comprehensive understanding of the various crises, Felix Stalder focuses on the implications and ambivalence of new technologies, Friederike Habermann speaks from the perspective of social movements and Silke Helfrich will represent the idea of the commons as an alternative model for the organization of society. The panel will address questions such as: Where can we start? What are the challenges and how can we meet them? Which forward-looking projects and movements can we become a part of?
Moderation: Josef Obermoser (Crossroads, FORUM STADTPARK)
