“One World in Tech: Humanity’s Digital Future”

Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club, Nanyuki, Kenya | November 10th – 13th, 2023


Our present and future are moving towards a unified global landscape. In this vision of the future our world will be a connected and collaborative place, where technological advancements are shared, leveraged, and utilized to address global challenges, improve the human condition, and foster mutual understanding among diverse cultures.


 In this seminar we will reflect on technology as a unifying force, transcending traditional barriers and contributing to a more interconnected, prosperous, and harmonious global society. We will consider how the power of technology can be harnessed for the betterment of all humankind, regardless of differences in geography, culture, or socioeconomic status while addressing the growing concerns about artificial intelligence, digital media, and privacy and surveillance. 


Join us for a stimulating dialogue exploring the possibilities and pitfalls of technology as we race towards humanity’s digital future.


Moderator: William Powers is co-founder and CEO of Public Mind, a non-profit technology organization launching in 2023.
