Safe Spaces

When trust is at an all-time low, safe spaces become vital.

In a world flooded with free information, cheap devices, and intelligent technologies trying to make sense of everything, our attention and trust have become precious commodities.

Concerted mis- and disinformation campaigns globally have eroded our belief in public and private institutions alike.

Macro trends of digital weaponization, mass surveillance, cultural intolerance, communal aggression, privacy violations, and crippled healthcare delivery have left many of us feeling helpless.

Is technology still our panacea?

In such a challenging environment, safe spaces are essential because they serve as oases of possibility in the barren information desert.

They exist not only to protect us from threats but to inspire the best in us. This is precisely why we must reimagine them and design them from scratch so humans, machines, and nature can securely identify, fully trust, and confidently operate in these new environments.

Technology and well-being are absolutely vital to our long-term ability to manage risk and become resilient to threats. And safe spaces are where we will foster new-age collaboration.
