A networked society contributing to positive change
Guest Lecturer: Marcus Nyberg
Content: The lecture will introduce a vision of a Networked Society and how that could transform activities through, for example, collaboration, resource sharing, awareness and dematerialization. It will present a more decentralized, less administrative and most importantly people-centric perspective for how societies can benefit from ICT. Along the way, a number of relevant ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) trends and concrete examples will illustrate possible contributions to more sustainable practices.
