Over the past 30 years, a new digital culture, interactivity and instantaneous communication have fundamentally changed our world.

We are now at a new crossroads: advances in augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence; the ‘internet of things’; how we interact with devices and the disappearance of the keyboard; big data and user experience tailored to the individual will all change how we live, work, play and participate in society – administratively, economically, socially and politically.

What are the potential benefits of these changes, what are the potential drawbacks? How can we ensure that such changes lead to the further development of inclusive societies?
If you are a young adult between 18 and 30 years, have your residency in either Europe or Canada, if you are interested in shaping your digital future and also consider yourself as part of any kind of minority, this is the right project for you.

The first event ‘24hrs Thinkathon’ takes place in Montreal on October 4th to 5th. Register as of now to become an online or on-site participant and run the chance to win great prizes.
