The People Vs Tech (how the internet is killing democracy)


© CLGdotTV 2018

Working Lunch - author & sometime digital doomsayer Jamie Bartlett, optimist & digital creative Lars Malmqvist and book loving cynic Joe Tibbetts on how digital is killing democracy (or not)

On the back cover of Jamie Bartlett's new book it says "at some point within the next generation....either tech will destroy democracy and the social order as we know it or politics will stamp its control over the digital revolution." Bartlett thinks that technology is winning the war but he has a few suggestions on what we might do (must do!) to turn things around before it's too late. Malmqvist, Bartlett and Tibbetts get stuck in. This is compulsory viewing for anyone who cares about democracy but thinks that a voice activated digital personal assistant might be a cute birthday present.



There can be no smart places without smart leaders.

CLG Live 2018 offer ten, expert led discussions, looking forward to the next chapter in the transformation of local government.

On 27th June around sixty people, change leaders, committed to making a difference, will meet at 58VE (the NESTA building) on London’s Victoria Embankment to enjoy ten, peer and expert-led discussions all designed to one end to ensure that there is a next chapter in the transformation of local government. And after the putting down of markers, the creative stimulation, the networking and the seeding of future collaborations the outcome will be ten CLGdotTV programmes made available on-demand in the following months
