Topics

During Gather we explore five themes; Humans & Machines, Democracy & Power, Business & Transactions, Media & Creativity and Urban Planning & Society.

Since we met last year in September we’ve been engaging the Gather community in exploring what content to fill these themes with. What are the most pressing issues? What is a perspective that’s relevant but rarely represented?

The result is a broad range of topics, spanning from the Economy of Death to Blockchain and the Impact of Decentralized Platforms. A content that is relevant regardless of what industry you are working in, putting new technology and development in a broader perspective.
