Montreal, March 7, 2022 — The 4th edition of MTL connect: Montreal Digital Week will be held from October 15 to 23, 2022 in a hybrid format. On this occasion, Montreal Digital Spring (PN) invites you to submit your application by April 25, 2022 to present conferences, panel discussions and workshops around the central theme of (ECO)Systems of Hope.
The main constant of this latest pandemic remains change. Adapting, modifying, transforming to suit a reality that has been turned upside down, questioning our models of thoughts and our perspectives. This crisis, initiating a collective process of unprecedented scope to find solutions inevitably, found some of the answers coming from digital technology. The central theme of MTL connect 2022, (ECO)Systems of Hope, is an invitation to imagine the actions we must all collectively engage in. It has become imperative to imagine digital ecosystems that will allow us to adapt and open the horizons of possibilities for the world of tomorrow.
In which ways can digital advances help us move towards a more resilient urban structure? How can technology and digital tools lead us towards new solutions to climate change? How do we build the future of education and work, in resonance with new technological perspectives? How do we ensure the protection of our data in an increasingly connected world? How do we envision the future of the creative and cultural sectors? How to develop benevolent technologies? How can we mobilize all the sectors involved in digital technology in order to create together (ECO)Systems of Hope?
This new edition questions the present tendencies and directs its programming towards the ideal digital, generator of wealth and development for our territories: a digitalisation with a social, ecological and ethical scope; a digital for the world of tomorrow. The central theme of this 4th edition of MTL connect: Montreal Digital Week is (ECO)SYSTEMS OF HOPE.
The choice of the theme (ECO)Systems of Hope was inspired by the article “The Sixth Mass Extinction: fact, fiction or speculation?” from the review Biological Reviews.
