    How to build trust in the world full of technology?

    How to build credibility in more and more digitalized world? What is the impact of technologies on our choices: who we trust and why? Why is trust so important in our everyday and professional lives and what role is played by social organizations in enhancing social trust? Experts of Sector 3.0 Festival which will be held online already on May 18 will tell you about phenomena which being a new “currency” cement relationships and let us live and work at the time of changing technologies.

    In the present, digitally linked world trust is fragile and can be lost easily. Global crises and everyday life where technologies change the work profile and subsequent pandemic consequences teach us a lot about how to function in change. More and more often we ponder on who and how much we can trust and what the future will bring. 

    The role of modern technologies in seeking balance will be discussed by speakers of Sector 3.0 Festival which this year will be held under the slogan of “Building Trust”. The special guest of the Festival will be U.S. Ambassador to Poland Mark Brzezinski; invited speakers include Magdalena Dziewguć (Google Cloud Polska), Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek (Koźmiński University), Zuzanna Rudzińska-Bluszcz (ClientEarth), Scott Mauvais (Microsoft), Prof. Adam Bodnar, Ph. D (SWPS University), Dr. David M. Bersoff (Edelman Data & Intelligence), Dawid Łasiński (Pan Belfer), Paulina Górska (environmental educator), Renata Avila (Open Knowledge Foundation), Remigiusz “reZigiusz” Wierzgoń, Karolina Sznajder (Ringier Axel Springer Polska) and Adam Bielecki, a Himalayan and eight-thousanders climber. 

    „Trust is nowadays one of the biggest challenges we face. It impacts many aspects of our lives, including work, studying or development of personal contacts. More and more often relationships develop simultaneously in traditional and digital spaces; therefore we have to be properly prepared for that. Together with invited experts of social organizations, business, academic world and media, we will try to figure out if technology can help us in that,” Sector 3.0 Program Director Dawid Szarański says.

    How to build trust at the times of technological turbulence

    Organized from 2012, the Sector 3.0 Festival is the biggest event allowing for exchange information on the present trends in ICT use for social activity. This year’s round offers a dozen of lectures in the following three thematic blocks: 

    • Building Trust  – who and why we trust in the context of phenomena such as information bubble, new authorities activities (influencers) or pop-education;
    • Digital Trust – what is the impact of tools on our trust to organizations and institutions, how to consume technologies in responsible manner and care for data security;
    • Trust as a New Currency – what is the model of trust in today’s hybrid work environment, what challenges related to trust we face and how we can solve the problems, and taking trust as a new currency, especially in the context of dynamic changes in organizations’ structures and roles.

    The Festival will deal with such issues as trust between an employee and an employer, trusting third sector representatives, media and public administration, as well as pop-education, building resilience and persistence in organizations, and ethics in the context of selection of tools used in social activity.

    The list of guests invited to this year’s Sector 3.0 Festival includes: Dr. Michał Boni (SWPS University), Dariusz Bugalski (K3 Podcast), Sylwia Czubkowska (Spider’s Web+), Van Anh Dam (INCO Academy), Małanka Junko (Jerzy Regulski Foundation for the Development of Local Democracy), Dr. Agata Kozłowska (SWPS University), Wojciech Mróz (Ashoka), Lech Wikaryjczyk (No Fluff Jobs), Pernille Tranberg (DataEthics.eu) and others. 

    Seminar sessions, panel discussions and lectures will be broadcast live from studio built for that purpose at Cambridge Innovation Center Warsaw. Festival will also offer virtual meetings allowing participants to interact with lecturers and visit partner’s stands. 

    Meet Sector 3.0 Award winner

    During the Festival the Polish-American Freedom Foundation Sector 3.0 Award of PLN 40,000 will be presented to the winner.  

    “The mission of Polish-American Freedom Foundation Sector 3.0 Award is to appreciate organizations which use skillfully and effectively  the opportunities offered by new technologies in their everyday activities. Effective organizations not only have proper attitude to social problems but also select their tools properly to reach possibly the broadest range of their help recipients,” says Polish-American Freedom Foundation Program Director Radosław Jasiński.

    The Competition Committee will award those organizations which in its opinion use technologies best and will present them as a positive example of social organizations present on Polish market. The winners will receive grants for their statutory activities.
