This conference explores a new generation of tech products that offer design affordances and algorithms optimized for prosocial content. Professional development opportunities include:

  • Learn from social cohesion practitioners with decades of experiences working to depolarize groups

  • Be inspired by a new generation of tech platforms designed with algorithms and affordances to help groups find common ground and build empathy

  • Learn metrics for measuring polarization and social cohesion

  • Network with tech innovation teams and experienced community bridge builders and peace builders from around the world

NOTE: Includes panels on topics like: “Using Tech for Intergroup Dialogue,” and “How can Bridge-Building & Peacebuilding Experts Inform Tech Designs?” so it seems appropriate for many followers of this site.
