Exploring human potential through technology

Can technology be designed to make us happier, help us flourish, and foster human potential?

How can we use it to explore increasingly popular social movements designed to promote human connection such as community gardens?   

Victoria University invites you to Footscray’s VU at MetroWest on Tuesday 4 August from 2pm-4.30pm to hear two leading researchers discuss questions like these that are at the fascinating intersection of technology and human potential.

Join two expert speakers:

  • the University of Sydney’s Professor Rafael Calvo, an international expert on ‘positive computing’ –a new field dedicated to the development of technology that supports wellbeing
  • RMIT’s Associate Professor Tania Lewis, who has researched the politics and practices of community-led green movements through the lens of technology.

The free symposium, presented by VU’s Centre for Cultural Diversity and Wellbeing, will be followed by refreshments and a community discussion.
