Following a successful debut, DangerousTech Berlin is back with another event, this time focusing on the power of data for social impact storytelling. The evening is kindly co-hosted by CODE, a private university of applied sciences for the digital pioneers of tomorrow.
As the digital transformation creates an unprecedented and ever-growing amount of data, storytellers from all walks of life have access to a valuable new resource. Data-driven stories can shed new light on an endless array of issues, from uncovering corruption and advocating for transparency, to shifting cultural perspectives on key issues, to highlighting challenges and finding innovative solutions.
So how can we turn the raw material into something meaningful, accessible and compelling? A diverse lineup of data-driven storytellers share how they’re using digital information to change the narrative, change the game and change the world.
