About Techfestival. Copenhagen:

Starting a new conversation on the values and principles that guide technology

Introducing the first people and topics that shape the agenda of Techfestival 2017.

A few months ago we set out to describe and share a progressive, human-centered perspective on technology. To find the others — to give birth to a new narrative, one beyond Silicon Valley’s insatiable addiction to innovation and growth. It is about time to remind ourselves of the noble idea of progress, to reflect, to critically reassess what we want technology to do, and what we want to do with technology. To sum it up, let’s move things in a direction that works for all of us. Already, hundreds of co-creators joined forces to bring life to the inaugural Techfestival, September 5–10. Today, we’re sharing with you what they have in stock for you; and there’s much more to come. You can click your way through the entire program here.
