Techno-Liberation
Can technology contribute to social equality?

Imagine you lived in a house with walls that can repair themselves
Imagine you could 3D print a jumper when you need it

People want to empower themselves through the use of technology; people want to find innovative solutions to old problems. So what does it take to build a world where technology helps everyone to reach their full potential? We invite you to share your thoughts with academics, digital activists and designers. Challenge the experts and contribute your own views and practical solutions!

Professor Judy Wajcman (LSE), Charles Leadbeater (NESTA), David Wood (London Futurists), Dr Marcos Cruz (UCL), Klara-Aylin Wenten (STS, UCL), Emilia Lischke (School for Public Policy, UCL). Chaired by Dr Jack Stilgoe (UCL)
