Can’t stop compulsively checking your email? Find yourself scrolling mindlessly through Instagram? Just spent 2 hours on YouTube without ever planning to?
Digital addiction is central to human downgrading, and it’s the climate change of culture. As an addiction not yet fully recognized as such, it impacts all of us, to varying degrees.
In this world of instant gratification, endless feeds, and countless notifications, we seek to provide insights into mindful design, values-driven usage, and empowering solutions.
Before the event we encourage you to – anonymously – share your personal experience with digital addiction with us, so that we might share some of them at the event. We hope this will help everyone empathize with the problem, and lead to more openness. You can find the form here: https://forms.gle/XiiHHiPHK9GDt5J48
We want to collectively understand and experience what this is doing to us, so that we might find empathy, perspective, and a shared desire to find meaningful and empowering solutions.
