Human-Centered Tech and Design Shaping Society

Until very recently the world looked to Silicon Valley and the global tech elites to lead us towards the future: to empower and enlighten people and businesses, to make technology democratic, to provide equality and create a new and more sustainable form of capitalism and society. It is a apparent that this is not the happening the way we imagined it. As it becomes more and more obvious that current big tech models for innovation fails to address basic human needs such as privacy, data protection and sustainability in both economic, social and environmental terms, it is time for new global leadership in tech: One that is equally innovative, but which puts humans first. In other words we need to design differently when we develop business and societies.
