What will you talk about at Lindholmen Software Development day
"The transforming power of digitalization of society affects the core foundations of how our society, how we work, how we live and how we are active citizens. Just as digitalization of society brings with it great benefits and possibilities, it also brings with it new problems and situations to be identified and related to. Digitalization transforms our democratic dialogue. In order to strengthen an open society and continue to build an open and inclusive democracy, citizens needs media and information literacy, in order to build democratic resilience and mitigate risks of disinformation, propaganda and hate on the internet. In my talk I will explore this field and suggest areas of interest for the industry to further explore, so that we together can build a resilient democracy."
