CBC IDEAS: Visionaries in Conversation

Immerse yourself in a insightful discussion moderated by CBC IDEAS host Nahlah Ayed, accompanied by renowned science fiction writer and tech visionary, Cory Doctorow. Joining this compelling lineup is tech policy entrepreneur and incisive analyst, Vass Bednar. Together, they will embark on a thought-provoking journey, delving into the pivotal interplay between imagination, public policy, and advocacy.

Discover how these driving forces empower us to seize control of our technology, instead of ceding power to formidable external influences. This isn’t just a conversation; it’s an opportunity to explore how we reshape the future of our tech-driven world — an exhilarating exploration of possibilities!
