The Fourth Industrial Revolution and civil society: Turning the tide from where we’re heading

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Civil society continues to evolve and adapt to champion human rights and strengthen the common good in a rapidly changing and fractured world. The Fourth Industrial Revolution introduces new challenges in the interconnectedness and scale of new technologies, dilemmas over protecting rights in a new commons, and innovations that take human rights beyond the level of humanity. How can civil society adapt its current innovation strategies to respond to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and work in partnership with business, governments and others towards human-centered, inclusive governance of emerging technologies?

This panel session will reflect on the World Economic Forum’s commitment towards a human-centred Fourth Industrial Revolution, and hear from key voices from Civil Society and beyond already responding to digital and emerging technologies.
