Our fifth BOOST Talks webinar series will explore how combining art with technology prepares us to address global issues. The webinar is part of BOOST, a UNDP-led initiative that uses social innovation to tackle Covid-19 challenges in the Europe and Central Asia region and beyond.
Human beings are designed to use both sides of the brain but rigid educational processes limit us most of the time to exploring just one world – either art bringing design, creativity, and imagination or technology coupled with analysis, logic, and math. But why not combine both of them? Art advances the experiences of technology, while the technology advances the possibilities of art. As the impact of the pandemic has reached all corners of society with its unprecedented challenges, now is the time to fight back by using innovative means to make a positive impact in the world.
Join UNDP and Alberto Levy, Director at Founder Institute Madrid, International MBA Professor, and Startup Mentor at IE Business School as he shares his insights on how applying the equation of art and technology introduces new capabilities and creativity in tackling Covid-19. Alberto is considered an “Innovation Evangelist” by the Harvard Business Review Summit and the World Economic Forum. In this edition of BOOST Talks, Alberto’s executive strategist and creative soul will empower and inspire us to be innovators by design.
Thursday, 15 April 2021, 16:00 CET (1 hour), registration necessary
