What does it mean to be a citizen in a digital era?

As people become more connected with ideas, movements, and other people around the world, our notion of citizenship—and thus, our notion of identity in relation to where we live—is changing rapidly.

This panel will explore what citizenship means in a digital era—including the rights, responsibilities, challenges, and opportunities for each one of us—as well as the transformation in public governance necessary to adapt to this changing role of the citizen.

This session will be presented as a fireside-chat-style conversation between panelists; audience participation will be encouraged.
