Conference Tech & Society: “How To Be a Good Digital Parent”

Espacio Fundación Telefónica
7/03/2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Aspen Institute España and Fundación Telefónica have celebrated a new session of the Tech & Society Program 2019 on “How To Be a Good Digital Parent” with Stephen Balkam, founder and director of Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI) and Noelia Amoedo, CEO of Mediamart Mobile, moderator of the debate with the assistants.

 


The digital environment arouses a logic concern among parents with sons and daughters of all ages. Overexposure of children to screens, not being mature enough to anticipate the dangers or understand the consequences, generate a multitude of questions: What guidelines should be followed by parents in the digital education of their children? What aspects should be paid more attention to? How to help establish a positive and enriching relationship between our children and digital technologies?

TECH & SOCIETY PROGRAM
Moderated by Stephen Balkam, Founder and CEO of the Family Online Safety Institute (FOSI)

Aspen Institute España celebrated on March, 8-10, 2019, it’s next annual edition of the Socrates Seminar. This Seminar is part of Tech&Society Program, organized in colaboration with Fundación Telefónica. Stephen Balkam, Founder and CEO of FOSI, was the moderator of the Seminar.

Following the lines set forth by The Aspen Institute in the US, the Socrates España Seminars provide a forum for emerging leaders (between the ages of 28 and 45) from various professions to convene and reflect over contemporary issues through expert-moderated dialogues. These seminars enable participants to explore current and pressing leadership challenges. Discussions are built around contemporary texts, and are led by expert moderators who engage and encourage participants to share their views. At the core of these Seminars is a remarkable group of emerging and recognized leaders including entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, representatives from the public sector and journalists, among others.

This program, co-organized with Fundación Telefónica, aims to establish a forum for reflection on the issues raised by advances in digital technology and its influence in areas as diverse as human relations, politics, education, the economy or medicine. Digital technology is radically changing almost everything we do, from the way we manage our business to how we educate the next generation or the way we coexist in a democratic society. What are the most important changes and technological trends and how can we prepare to face them? What are the specific ways in which technological change is improving our individual and collective lives? What is its impact on political participation? How does technological development affect the workforce, productivity or the perception of life and health?

Since its first edition in 2017, the Program incorporates a Socrates Seminar as part of its activities. In the first edition, the seminar was moderated by Connie Yowell, CEO of Collective Shift, and discussed “Change and opportunity: The future of work and learning”. The second edition of the Program, in 2018, incorporated a Socrates Seminar moderated by Leigh Hafrey, Professor of Ethics and Communication at the MIT Sloan School of Management, and titled “Brave New World: Humanity, Technology and the Future of Work”.

Aspen Seminar 2019

The Aspen Institute España will celebrate an Aspen Seminar, “Transatlantic Values at a Crossroads: Contemporary Leadership Challenges,” in la Real Maestranza de Ronda from May 16-19, 2019.

The seminar, organized in collaboration with The Aspen Institute (USA), will be moderated by Todd Breyfogle, Director of Seminars for The Aspen Institute.

Based in the readings of classical texts of Western philosophy, politics, and literature, the Aspen Seminar analyzes the values of an open society, and the tensions inherent in the attempt to define such a society. These seminars bring together a group of distinguished leaders who come from a range of sectors within civil society, thus comprising a forum for the reflection upon and debate of the current and future state of democracy, as seen through the lens of timeless human values.

For more than sixty years, the Aspen Seminar on leadership, values and the good society has challenged leaders in every field to think more critically and deeply about the good society. The Aspen Seminar, “Transatlantic Values at a Crossroads: Contemporary Leadership Challenges” uses Aspen’s proven method of text-based dialogue to offer participants a neutral forum in which to reflect on the current state and future of transatlantic, democratic capitalism in the context of timeless human values.

Participants emerge from Aspen seminars personally renewed, professionally re-focused, and better prepared to lead as they confront the difficult economic and political choices before them. In a setting conducive to thought and fellowship, each Aspen Seminar convenes a diverse group of 22 leaders for lively, intensive roundtable discussions led by a skilled moderator. Classic and contemporary texts reflecting the breadth of human civilization form the starting points of a rich conversation in which the questions posed by the group are frequently as illuminating as the varied, timeless wisdom of the texts.

Tech & Society: “El futuro de internet: un contrato social para la Web”

Espacio Fundación Telefónica
20/05/2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Aspen Institute España y Fundación Telefónica han celebrado una nueva sesión del Programa Tech&Society con una conferencia titulada El futuro de internet: un contrato social para la web con José Manuel Alonso, director de Estrategia y Alianzas de la Web Foundation. Marta Peirano, escritora, periodista y adjunta a la dirección en eldiario.es, moderó el encuentro con el público.


La descentralización, la no discriminación, el diseño colaborativo o la vocación universal son conceptos sobre los que se fundó la web, con el fin de poner el conocimiento a disposición de todos. Actualmente, mientras la mitad del mundo no tiene acceso a internet, la otra mitad pone en riesgo su privacidad, seguridad y derechos fundamentales al hacerlo.

En esta sesión hemos debatido sobre la vigencia de los valores que sustentaban la web en sus orígenes, en qué se ha convertido y cómo rediseñarla en el futuro. ¿Podría un contrato social paliar los riesgos a los que estamos sometidos en la web?

The session will be held in Spanish

 

Aspen Institute España and Fundación Telefónica celebrate a new session of the Tech&Society Program 2019 on The future of Internet: a social contract for the web with José Manuel Alonso, Director of Strategy and Alliances at Web Foundation. Marta Peirano, is a writer, a journalist and the Deputy Director of the digital newspaper eldiario.es, will moderate the conference.

Descentralization, non-discrimination, collaborative design, or the universal service are some of the concepts over which the web was founded. They had a very clear objective: to make knowledge available to the whole society. Currently, while half of the world population do not have access to Internet, the other half put their privacy, security and fundamental rights at risk.

Within this session we will debate about the continuity of the values that underpinned the Web originally, what the Web is like nowadays and how to redesign it in the future. Could a social contract palliate the risks we are exposed to at the Web?

 

 

This event will be interpreted in Spanish Sign Language; held in Spanish and could be followed in social networks with #TechSociety. If you want to come, do not forget to book your ticket.
