Event description
Welcome to a world where the line between information, facts, half-truths, omissions, propaganda and disinformation is blurred.

About this event

Diplosphere discusses:

Living in the Age of Outrage

We thought the internet would democratise information, facts, science and bring us closer together... but we find ourselves in a polarised world, where disinformation looks like any other information.

  • Has political correctness gone too far?
  • Where do we draw the line between freedom of expression and discrimination?
  • In a world of extremes, how to find the middle ground?

Let’s have a conversation about today’s society — from fake news culture to identity crisis, from political sloganeering to the power of the hashtag.

Speakers:

  • Jessica Mutch McKay, TVNZ Political Editor
  • Tova O'Brien, NewsHub Political Editor
  • Chlöe Swarbrick, Green Party MP
  • Hon Simon Bridges, National Party MP
  • Dr Bryce Edwards, Political commentator, Research Associate, Institute for Governance and Policy Studies, Victoria University of Wellington
  • Alejandro Ramos Cardoso, Deputy Chief of Mission, Mexican Embassy

Chair: Maty Nikkhou-O'Brien, Executive Director, Diplosphere

Proceedings:

  • 5.30pm - 6.00pm - Registration, Networking drinks
  • 6.00pm-7.00pm - Panel discussion

Dress code: Business casual
