As digital technology continues to impact everyday life, it is important to build awareness of the opportunities and risks that the digital age poses to social and environmental systems. Sustainability in the Digital Age is a Concordia think tank that works to build awareness on digital sustainability and the LEADS program is a graduate training experience about science leadership in a digitally enabled global context. Join us for this session as part of the Concordia sustainability conference “Hope and Agency in Uncertain Times.”

This panel will invite speakers to explore how digital transformations are impacting everyday human interactions and what that means for environmental sustainability. From music to social media, researchers on campus are asking questions like: How can the arts influence the sustainability of a community and how does digital innovation mediate that interaction? How can we deal with bias in AI and detect sentiment, emotion and offense in social media? Come and learn about these initiatives and join the in-person Q&A.

Light refreshments to be served for in-person participants!
