In conversation with Olivia Zerón.
Just as the Internet has become an essential tool that structures so many aspects of contemporary life, so it also brings challenges, problems and threats, perhaps precisely because it has become so important in our lives. Technological sovereignty, cyber-surveillance, algorithm-based inequalities and even our dependence on the Web are topics that cannot be ignored. The thinker and author Yásnaya Elena Aguilar (Mexico), and the journalists Emma Graham-Harrison (United Kingdom) and Marta Peirano (Spain), will talk about these matters with Ana Pais.

Her book Crecer entre pantallas (2022) is about the uses and misuses that young people make of technology, and how parents can deal with this; it is about interacting with these devices, managing mental health, and realizing the potential that these technologies have when used well.
