13: Our Life After the Digital Revolution

Breakout / Working Group
german language

Supported by SAP
For every movement there is an opposite movement. 20 years of digital revolution have not only changed the working environment, but have also had an impact on society. Is the “internet generation” still the measure of all things or is it already becoming outdated? In which ways can the different generations learn from each other? Is it possible to pass on values and experiences in both directions, and if so, how? We invite you to discuss these issues with us.
