Society>Tech Initiative is about developing more effective and socially useful approaches to technology innovation. This initiative links three academics from the University of Sussex with tech entrepreneurs. It is designed to look at how social science research can help tech innovators move beyond models that assume that if tech receives investment and market share, then it is automatically socially useful.
In this 3-month programme between Jan and March 2021, a number of events were organized. In particular, Ann Light had a discussion with Ann Longley (Founder of Something New Together) on the topic of Designs to Reshape Humanity.
How can design and design practices be re-thought to centre on social and environmental justice?
