Panel Discussion


Politicians of all colors talk about technology and digital rights

4 November 2023
19:00 — 20:15

Location: Het Huis Main Stage

With a general election coming up on 22 November in the Netherlands, the IMPAKT Festival 2023 invites Dutch politicians to discuss the most urgent issues relating to our digital rights. Politicians are the ones who should be developing better legislation that forces online platforms to be more ethical. It is their job to make sure our data is protected and that tech corporations operate on our terms. And when it comes to the way governments themselves use digital technologies, our politicians should prioritise the interests of the people over efficiency. In this panel we invite politicians to state their position in clear terms and nail their colours to the mast. We ask them: “How are you going to ensure our digital future is fair and inclusive?”
