Digital Society School Launch

HvA meets Forbes Under 30 Summit


How do we intergrate technology into society, in a meaningful way? The integration of technology in society will be off to a flying start with the launch of the HvA Digital Society School. Explore with us how we can have impact on business and society, by integrating technology in our lives!


Changemakers, Transformation Designers, Creatives, Techies and all others who believe they can contribute to a meaningful integration of technology in society. Why wait until the tech that shapes our future is a given? Instead, let’s work on ideas to successfully integrate digital technology in our lives and society today.

Digital Society School

At Digital Society School we invite you to direct your interests, knowledge and effort towards building a digital society. Because we believe that it can -and should- be inclusive, intelligent, and involve us all. In the afternoon we will organise various pre-events with Forbes 30 Under 30 where we zoom in on the impact of technology on the Sustainable Development Goals in various vibrant venues at the Knowledge Mile.
