Panel: Beyond Free Speech: (Mis)Information, Power, and Experience
This topic is particularly pertinent as a political moment in this election year, and in light of the work being done by the Department of Internal Affairs around the Christchurch Call.  There has not been enough discussion around issues like online misinformation, hate, and extremism which take structural approaches into consideration. Instead the focus has been to take such issues as merely isolated acts of individuals that need to have roadblocks placed in front of them. There is a lack of focus upon the way mis/disinformation connects to extreme violence. Further, such discussions are wont to devolve into unhelpful debates around free speech, rather than more holistic and nuanced solutions. As we move into election 2020, a push is needed for better political, legislative and policy solutions to complex problems, ensuring that our government pays serious attention to keeping us SAFE from harms caused while advancing anti-violence commitments such as the Christchurch Call.

Panel: The Revolution Will Be Livestreamed
The ongoing struggle for social and racial justice in the public square has unfolded alongside a takeover of the virtual one. Amid cell-phone footage of protests and toppling statues, the internet has been further inundated with what we might call online social activism.

The digital space has given voice to the outrage, grief, trauma, anger, and resiliency within the black and brown community of Aotearoa New Zealand. It has unified a diverse group of people, activated our common allies, and demanded action, but not without a price. And while there is no question that social media is a powerful activism tool, we must recognise its difficult complexities in order to make positive progress.

We speak with young leaders behind the historic 14 June Black Lives Matter Wellington rally, attended by 20,000 people, to learn more about their experiences with online social activism.
  • Has the internet become better at mediating change?
  • What is the toll on young people and how can we better support them?
Join our online panel in a candid conversation about the double-edged sword of online activism, and the internet stories we aren’t hearing.

Panel: Why Copyright Policy Matters in 2020
When fretting about the state of the internet in 2020, you’re probably not too preoccupied with copyright. We get it: misinformation, data protection, and platform dominance are all centre stage right now — and besides, “Skynet” wound up being a bit of a dud. But our panelists are stubbornly convinced that copyright policy should be near the top of your list of internet issues to care about heading into the new decade, and are keen to share why.
