7 – 8 Nov, Berlin: The impact of digitalisation on 21st century families

COFACE – Families Europe and AGF are jointly organising the conference ‘The impact of digitalisation on 21st century families’ on 7-8 November in Berlin. Experts and stakeholders will get together to discuss this topic, aiming to stimulate debate, put some practical examples out there, and take a peek at what the future will bring.

These key issues will be addressed:

  • Impact of new digital workplaces on families.
  • Digitalisation – Providing better scope for combining work and family life?
  • Technology and the full employment paradigm – families out of a job?
  • Sharing economy to complement family incomes.
  • Impact of information and communication technologies on families as consumers and citizens.
  • Accessibility to technology for people with impairments and disabilities – myth or reality?
  • ICT: empowered families or manipulated families?
  • Data analytics: friend or foe?
  • The growing commercialization of the Internet. Data collection, advertisements and services.
  • Creating new workers. Preparing young people for the changing employment landscape.
  • Children/youth as internet consumers and content producers: creating a safe digital universe for our children.

Interpretation from/into English and German will be provided on Tuesday 8th for the Welcome, Opening and Closing plenaries.
There are two workshop sessions, each session is divided into three workshops on a variety of digitalisation trends. One out of the three workshops per session will have English-German interpretation. Conference language on Monday, 7th will be English only.
