Genève, Genève (fr)

What does "freedom @ Digital Age" mean today? The stories of Echelon, Wikileaks, Snowden and the NSA scandal lead society to question the notions of information privacy, transparency, common sense, and use of personal data for commercial purposes.

To be "free", is it simply the freedom to enjoy without restraint? Is it freedom of speech? Is it freedom of opinion or free will? The freedom to use gratis everything we find on the Net? How to distinguish freedom with free access? And what is it about in our daily lives? As we know that every single click is recorded, analysed, what real choices do we have in the digital age,?

These are many issues that will be highlighted by our speakers, who, each in their own way, will reply to these questions and share their opinions with us.

You'll discover stories of people who designed their own paths to freedom. Get inspired !

Also a moment for networking in the Geneva International ambiance of the TEDx community, with sushis & cocktails :-)
