Activist-Exchange: Sharing Strategies to Take Back Control of the Future

ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED. LIMITED SPACES: 250

How can we bring about people’s control of technology? How can grassroots activists and popular movements take on the might of corporations who wish to impose new technologies on us? This workshop session, in collaboration with ETC Group, is an opportunity for activists from different communities around the world to connect and learn from each other’s experiences in struggles about technologies in the food system. What were the lessons for current times that can be learnt from opposing Terminator Technology in the early 2000’s? How can popular movements shape those future technologies that might affect them?  The discussion will start with a description of work by the Latin America Network for the Social Assessment of Technology (TECLA) by Verónica Villa.

Please note this workshop will be held in Zoom. Book your conference ticket to receive details on registering. The Zoom link to join will be emailed upon registration.
