Topic: Digital Emotional Contagions

As we entered, for the first time, into a truly connected decade, with the internet of things, and also with billions of people globally sharing same platforms like TikTok, SnapChat, WhatsApp/Facebook/Instagram etc, it’s obvious that our anthropologically designed brains are no longer capable of getting the rest it needs. The general governing feeling of fear, ecological and financial anxiety, and a state of mind of not-being-enough together with the always-on-mentality with telepresence imposed as the new normal make the situation even worse. So how to cope with it? Unfortunately one size does not fit all. In this session we will seek new ways how to find individual solutions to this ever more relevant issue for us all.
