About this event

In our increasingly connected, data-rich world, the collection and use of data raises new ethical implications and challenges individuals’ trust in digital technology. Misinformation, disinformation, data manipulation, exploitation, and privacy are often in the news and heating up global political debate. But what does this really mean for the people it affects and how can they take a greater role in shaping the future of data?  

Taking an open, people-centred and ethical approach to data collection and use is key to building trust. “Top down” regulation can only do so much if it doesn’t truly consider citizens’ wants and needs – we need a “grassroots” approach that enables a broad range of people to determine the future for the data revolution.

In this roundtable session, we will hear from the Corsham Institute who are supporting their local community with a “Your Data, Your Rights” project, exploring people’s attitudes towards their personal data and what knowledge and skills they need to make informed, safe decisions about how their data is managed.

Spaces are limited so book now to secure a spot.
