Gather 2018 will explore

Democracy & Power

What is real or true, how are we controlled by the big players and what does our future citizenship entail?

The world is changing faster than ever, and the burning question is whether modern democracy will be able to keep up with the changes. In what is often called a post-political and post-truth world, it is clear that technology continues to have a profound influence on economy, society and culture, but also on how we as human think and understand the world around us. What is real or true, how are we controlled by the big players like Google and Facebook, how do we make sure that we continue to vote as citizens, and, in this world of globalisation, climate change, algorithms, extremism and media confusion, what does this future citizenship entail?
