It’s a paradox. We’re still in the process of connecting the unconnected, while also realising that some of the latest trends in digitisation might not be as desirable after all. So what exactly is happening and what are the solutions? Technological developments are abound, just look at smart cities, connected devices and initiatives to further digitise government processes. But with all these opportunities and trends in mind, has it become a luxury to disconnect? In a journey around the world, an international panel of experts will address these questions, identifying both the value of each development and the challenges we still have to find satisfactory answers. This way, we hope to identify strategies to ensure that progress really means progress for the sake of everyone, everywhere.
