Digital Detox and Data Sensitivity (with Tactical Tech)


Tactical Tech is an international NGO that engages with citizens and civil-society organisations to explore and mitigate the impacts of technology on society. One of their current flagship projects is The Glass Room: a multi-format interactive exhibition in several versions including the Community Edition. It has travelled the world to expose the data trails we leave and to increase public awareness and contributeto the dynamic education on this topic. In the Glass Room Community Edition, a pop-up exhibition explores how society is dealing with the growing dependency on data and technology.

At DOTS, we come together to build on existing open source materials from a different perspective: How can innovation hubs around the globe, with their respective challenges, engage their communities around the topic of data sensitivity? How can they support entrepreneurs in thinking more critically about the use of data in their products, perhaps even market their awareness as a selling point?

Tactical Tech and GIG will create a joint strategy to develop a Global Hub Edition of the Glassroom Experience based on localized content related to the startup community in innovation hubs.
