Future Stories & Engagement – WOKE is a Future Condition, Not a Choice

With host Katrine K. Pedersen, Loopland, Specialist & Consultant, Digital Culture and Changes Strategies & Panel

In this opening session we zoom in on audiences, engagement, future stories and strategies.

We are in a decade of counter-cultures, digital movements and actions against inequality and abuse of power expressed through movements like Occupy Wall Street, MeToo, Black Lives Matter, Skolstrejk för klimatet etc., which have been driving forces in the push for the next cultural shift. It is revolution characterised by the ability to gain forces in the streets IRL and URL, not necessarily being for or against certain matters, ideologies or politics – but aiming collectively to challenge positions and the way we think about change.
