Sloweb Association for 2022 proposes the fourth edition of the Digital Ethics Forum, two days with conference panels and special events to explore some of the most pressing issues concerning ethics in the design, production, distribution and use of digital technologies.

“What to do” is the focus that this edition wants to pursue. A popular, informative and experiential event, during the Forum we will ask what is happening in offices, companies and institutions to understand what is being done to accept, adopt and include digital in an ethical and sustainable way in everyday life.

For this year’s edition we have set up a division of interventions that follows a conceptual scheme whereby the ‘playing field’ of digital ethics involves three main subjects: institutions, companies, citizens. For each subject – which we ideally place in a triangular playing field, in fact – we want to address issues relating to the application of ethics in the digital domain.

We will therefore have three sessions

  • the first (23rd afternoon) dedicated to what institutions do/should do, with a special focus on education and health;
  • the second (24th morning) on companies, digital or not, including information companies;
  • the third (24 afternoon) to citizens, and what is happening around responsible digital consumption

In addition, space has been dedicated to English-language speeches by experts in the field outside the Italian ecosystem to share best practices at an international level.

Last but not least, the Digital Ethics Forum is a free event and this year it has expanded from Turin to Rome as well, as a clear sign of growth.
