A Vision for a Brighter Future

Birgitta Jónsdóttir is the founder of The Icelandic Pirate Party, a poet, anarchist and activist. We are pleased to announce her addition to the speaker line-up at CloudFest for a discussion around the fight for democracry and human rights in today's digitized society.

We consume and share information online at a dizzying pace. Technology companies are engaged in an on-going race to innovate, and governments are struggling to pass legislation to ensure our online lives stay safe. Significant conflicts around privacy, access to untainted information (fake news), freedom of expression, and the right of association have materialized, and the world is left manage its way through the mayhem.

How then does democracy in the digital era need to evolve? Now is the time for the world to figure it out. The latest addition to our dynamic line-up of keynote speakers is Birgitta Jónsdóttir. As a poet, anarchist, and former founder of The Icelandic Pirate Party, Birgitta is slated to join CloudFest to speak to her thoughts on how Europe, and in turn, the world-at-large, can fight for democracy and human rights in the digital age. Specializing in 21st-century lawmaking with a focus on direct democracy, freedom of expression, information and digital privacy, she stands in a unique position to build bridges between governmental bodies and civil society with regard to practical policies in the digital age.

Join Birgitta for a deep dive into how we can seek to start delivering on our future – today. Thursday, March 14th – only at CloudFest.
