There is a gap between the ideas for system change and the actual change of the system. While we are aiming for a new digital world, we have to work with tools and in worlds that are not in line with our ideals. How can we meet this interim period we are in? Social designer and demonstrative philosophical writer Astrid Poot calls for punk-citizenship. How can we make the story of ā€˜inevitable evolving techā€™ a story about humanity?

Inspired by Hannah Arendt, Poot will discuss making change while having limited power, using anger and insecurity as a source. She'll challenge tech-experts that are problem solving the world, and call for a punk attitude. And finally, sheā€™ll take us back to being human: what is good?
