Opening Digital Society School

How do we integrate technology into society, in a meaningful way?

Please join us to celebrate the opening of the Digital Society School! Save the date for Friday September 7th, 4-6pm

In the afternoon we are co-hosting the Knowledge Day, as part of the Forbes 30under30 Summit. In line with the objectives of the Digital Society School, the focus of the day will be on what technology can do for society and specifically for the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The day will be packed with interviews and talks from successful and inspiring business leaders, entrepreneurs, performers and disruptors hosted at The Student Hotel Amsterdam City.

Come to socialise and celebrate the launch of the new school, and explore with us how we can have impact on business and society, by integrating technology in our lives!
