Spotlight seminar: Fear or excitement? The consequences of emerging technologies, October 4th, 2018

Founder, Ethica.ly
Adjunct Professor, Media Communications Department, Webster University Geneva & Jinan University, China

This event will be moderated by Sarah Grosso, Media Communications Department, Webster University Geneva.

This is a free event.

Advance registration is requested here>>

This presentation aims to create awareness about the positive and not-so-positive consequences of the new technologies that are increasingly influencing our lives.

Technology is progressing like never before; our civilisation will change so much that its rules and technologies will be incomprehensible to the previous generation. As science-fiction becomes science fact, this lecture looks at how these emerging technologies are impacting our lives. How can we befriend these new technologies, rather than running scared from their developments? How can we ensure a bright future in which our children will coexist peacefully and collaboratively with thinking machines?

The event will be followed by a question and answer session and a free networking cocktail.

Next UN Designers meet-up – 22 June 2018

The UN Designers’ next meetup will be on 22 June 2018 from 9:30am in Room VIII, Palais des Nations. (For those who are available, we would also like to invite you stay and socialize over lunch afterwards).
During our 12th Meeting, we will revisit Branding & Visual identities in the UN Family, this time with the help of Carlo Mendes. Carlo has been leading a visual identity exercise at IOM, and will be able to share his insights regarding the challenges of branding de-centralized organizations with strong regional presences, and how to ensure your brand stays relevant across all channels. This will be a great opportunity to discuss branding matters in multi-stakeholder organizations and gauge how design matters develop as compared to the private sector.

Entry is free, and if you would like to attend, please add your name/organization to this list before 20 June.
