Trust 2.0 -- Building Trust Through Technology

Trust 2.0
Building Trust Through Technology

New America Foundation
Wednesday, November 9, 2011
6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

In a networked world, weak social ties, not close relationships, are the ones that often lead to new opportunities and spark innovative ideas. Social media and other technologies help bridge geographic and cultural boundaries more easily than ever, but being connected alone is not enough.

How can we use the connections afforded by technology to build trust among diverse audiences? Across sectors, today's young leaders are using online platforms to strengthen offline communities. Please join the British Council in partnership with the New America Foundation during DC Week for a lively conversation with panelists who work in the performing arts, government, and local media.

After the panel, we invite you to continue the discussion around the corner at the Science Club (1136 19th Street NW) for happy hour specials. Meet us on Twitter first (@BCUnitedStates) and get the conversation started with #DC2020.

This event is part of the British Council's Transatlantic Network 2020, a project that connects the next generation of influencers across a wide variety of professional sectors in Europe and North America to work together to tackle global issues. The British Council thanks FutureGov for supporting this event.
