PICNIC Afternoons @ Dialogue Cafe with Rachel Armstrong 0 Reply

Today, we’re hosting the first PICNIC Afternoon at Dialogue Cafe Amsterdam.

RE-DESIGNING LIFE
Wednesday 22nd September 5.30pm – 7.00pm

As we are increasingly able to manipulate the building blocks of life and the (living) world around us, the possibilities seem endless: prolonging and enhancing human life with improved healthcare, implanting nano-chips in our brains to boost human intelligence, creating smart materials for more sustainable use, improving food crops and developing sustainable energy sources. But what are the ethical and moral implications of these developments? How does it change our role as human beings in the greater order of things?

Speakers:
Rachel Armstrong (Amsterdam)
Miguel Neiva (Lisbon)
Daniela Pais (Lisbon)
Nara Saraiva (Rio de Janeiro)
Guto Nóbrega (Rio de Janeiro)

Moderator:
Lucas Evers, Waag Society (Amsterdam)
