YorkIdeas on the Green talks
YorkIdeas, at the University of York, is teaming up with Angel on the Green – a community-owned enterprise – to bring ideas, research and engagement into York’s neighbourhoods.
On selected Monday evenings, a speaker from the University of York will set out a big idea in conversation with anyone who wants to come along and hear their reactions and ideas.
The seven-part series – free to attend for all – will explore some of the most pressing challenges our society is facing and the ideas and research that aim to solve them.
Digital Rights: What Are They and Why Should We Care About Them?
Digital rights protect us in the digital world, where some of the most powerful organisations in history are in control. Professor Tom Stoneham, Head of the Department of Philosophy, explores which digital rights are essential and asks whether new laws aiming to regulate the digital world are really protecting our rights or, in fact, taking them away.
Other talks in the series:
- Grub Up: Feeding the World With Crop Waste and Bugs
- What’s in Our Rivers?
- Tackling Inequality and Poverty: Community Wealth Building
- Exploring Art and Why It Matters
- From Spiders and Dogs to Vomit and Needles: Single-session Phobia Treatment for Children and Adolescents
- Policing and the Most Vulnerable in Society
