‘Sustainable Transformations Seminar Day’
Exploring the Arts and Creativity in Stimulating Innovations and Technologies with a Human Touch
Technology-assisted Creativity: from Human to Post-Human
Political, economic and technological models of modern urban planning are at the end of their rope. Cities around the globe are facing the urgency to respond to current environmental and societal issues (such as global warming, migrations, waste production, mass consumption, unequal distribution of wealth, etc.). We look at the development of digital technologies, which can help cities to function better, improve public services, and enrich the quality of living, as both one of the root causes and as a potential saviour in the sustainability challenge. How can we appropriate technology to come up with different futures? Featuring keynotes by Laura Beloff, Pia Fricker and Koray Tahiroglu from Aalto University.
The second part of the day consists of a workshop and panel discussion around wearable technologies and sustainable fashion and is not open to the general public. To the call for participants
