Tech for Democracy: How can digital technology help to engage and empower citizens?

How can we use tech to increase citizen participation in democratic decision making (e.g. Citizen Assemblies)? Can digital tools help engage citizens to generate ideas and be more active in civil society?

General elections are (most probably) happening! With plenty of discussions recently about the dangers of technology to democracy, this special ‘Brighton Digital Festival’ edition of Tech for Good Brighton focuses on the different ways that digital tech can be a force for good for democracy.

Join us for inspiring talks from:

  • Jen Bramley, Partnerships Manager at mySociety mySociety builds and shares digital technologies that help people be active citizens, across the three areas of Democracy, Transparency, and Community.

  • Ben Fowkes, Commercial Director at Delib Delib helps large organisations - mostly government - to adopt digital platforms for public consultation and participation exercises.

Talks will be followed by a panel discussion with city officials, local community organisations and tech for good advocates; as well as community shout-outs showcasing the best from the local ‘tech for good’ scene!

Five Minutes on the Apocalypse

Climate breakdown, insectageddon, polar ice melting, seas rising, plastic emergency ... Maybe it’s time to spend Five Minutes on the Apocalypse.

Come along to this friendly and supportive meet-up for people who know it’s the end of the world and would like some space to say it out loud, and share ideas for what we might do about it.

Hosted by experienced Art of Hosting and Mindfulness practitioners - Charlie Peverett and Tamsin Bishton - this meet-up was born out of their own need to take the time and space to look ecological disaster in the eye from time to time. They’ve found it has helped them stay focused on their work as communications leads at the charity Rewilding Britain. You’ll join other people like you in a safe space, have the opportunity to talk about what’s on your mind, and be supported to think about stepping through the anxiety into positive action.

Dad La Soul Rap Workshop + Lego + Toy-Repair + Craft For Dads & Kids

Dad La Soul’ is a revolutionary, grassroots movement, that uses the arts, music, tech and play to tackle social isolation in dads and kids.

We bring them together, challenge conventions, spark conversations and start friendships with dads that perhaps might otherwise struggle in silence or isolation.

Our new Saturday morning clubs are for dads, stepdads, granddads, male carers who want to hang out with their kids, play/learn/teach new skills and make some new cool friends.

You can expect: Soft play, crafting, Lego, dress-up and as part of a monthly theme, everything from filmmaking, DJ workshops, circus skills, zombie mask making, den building, science lessons and a whole lot more.

This month is VERY special we have:

Brighton's own Audio Active crew dropping by to teach us how to Rap and make funky beats of some nifty technology. Poorly Toy Surgery - Our own toy doctor Matt Marchant will be on hand to fix any of your kid's broken toys

Expect old-school tunes, games, card-making, and general dad-related daftness. Bring your favourite toys and games and join the party.

We have an incredible HQ in the centre of Hove at Platf9rm. It's a huge and very Funky co-working space that includes: auditorium-styled seating, a full HD Panasonic laser projector, a projector screen, a 14 channel mic/line mixer, as well as a cafe and bar.

Usually full of a smorgasbord of professions: film-makers, PR agencies, illustrators, charities, accountants, writers, cleaners, graphic designers and plenty more, Platf9rm is the perfect space for us to bring an army of kids into.

Dad La Soul is essentially the dad version of when women go to the toilet together at the pub except the kids are invited.

Its a safe space for dads and kids to let off steam, have some banter and ask for help.

Suitable for children aged 0-10.

PLATF9RM Presents: Our Good Friend, Technology

It’s no secret that technology is enabling a huge shift in the way we work. It’s enabling people to do more, better, in less time, not just for businesses but for young people and our communities. What else is it capable of?

Tech For Good brings together people that care about how digital technology can be a force for good. This progressive project has taken off across the world – and most recently right here in our local community. Community-builder, David Scurr – founder of our local Tech For Good network which is now 400 members strong – will divulge the details of how the local network began and the purpose behind it in a fascinating conversation with tech, media and society specialist Lizzie Hodgson. Lizzie and David will also offer us their professional insights on community building, approaches to changing mindsets and how to implement a movement away from some of the archaic structures that are holding us back.

This is a free event but we welcome donations to our charity partner of the year, The Clocktower Sanctuary.

PLATF9RM Presents: Join the Revolution - How to become a B-Corp

There's a lot of change happening in our world. To save ourselves and our planet, we need to change the way we do business, too. Lots of businesses are now labelling themselves as ‘ethical’, but what does it really mean? How can we tell the difference between greenwash and real impact?

B-Corp is the new certification standard that is introducing a new level of accountability to ethically minded businesses of all shapes and sizes. The benefits of becoming a B-Corp aren’t just felt on a world scale. The core brand values that the certification reinforces are sure to increase employee engagement and loyalty within your organisation, strengthen operational structures and help consumers relate to your brand.

Speakers to be announced soon!

Following our talk, we're pleased to host our neighbours and wonderful team at COOK, a b-corp organisation here in Brighton, later in the evening for their pop-up meal. They'll be going over the importance of relationship building over a delicious three course meal. Spaces are limited so make sure you book a spot for this here.

This is a free event but we welcome donations to our partner charity of 2019, The Clocktower Sanctuary.

PLATF9RM Learns: InDesign Basics for Print

Got a vision for your business cards, flyers or posters, but lacking the skills or budget to realise it? Then join graphic designer Gray Simpson for a quick fire masterclass on the basics of InDesign! Bring your laptop and learn how to set up a document, create text and image boxes, prepare images, use composition and layout tools, and finally how to create a print-ready PDF. As well as a brand new set of skills, you’ll take away your very own ‘cheat sheet’ at the end of the session.

And before the session make sure you've downloaded these files ready for the day. No need to go through them, Gray will go over these with you.

Please bear in mind that you must have a subscription to the Adobe Creative Suite to take part in this session and ideally some experience working with it, although no InDesign specific experience is necessary.

See you there!

PLATF9RM Lunchtime Yoga Reset

  • PLATF9RM, Floor 6, Tower Point (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

How much do you move your body throughout your working day? Many of us sit for very long periods of time every day. This means our body 'learns' how to sit. It gets really really good at it! But if we don't train our body to adopt other ways of moving we loose the ability to do so.

The solution doesn't have to be taking an hour every day (and the rest) to get to a yoga or fitness class. What if we could learn simple movements/excercises that we can use throughout the day that would make our body feel great! We don't even have to leave our desk.

Join Sophie for this short 20 minute session and learn simple effective movements to help make your body feel brand new!

We'll all set up at the main lunch table on Floor 6 at 12pm and won't be longer than 20mins to get you one with your day!
