The technological revolution, the climate crisis and the increase in social inequality, phenomena with unprecedented disruptive potential, place education and culture at the center of the debate: only through militant humanism can the negative effects of such transformative technologies be counteracted such as Artificial Intelligence, as well as guaranteeing a reasonably sustainable future. The philosopher Pilar Cortada, director of Eina Obra; the engineer Xavier Ginesta, director of the Conscious Capitalism Foundation; the writer and columnist Gustavo Martín Garzo and the director of Programming of Acción Cultural Española (AC/E), Inma Ballesteros, will talk in a discussion moderated by Miquel Molina, deputy director of La Vanguardia and writer. The event is presented by Sheila Cremaschi, director of the Hay Festival and chosen by Forbes among the 75 Latin women to follow 2024.
