SNF Dialogues: Generation Social

😀 or ☹️ or 🤮 or 😈 or 💩 or BTW CMO but 👍 not.

Ideally, social networks are an easy place to “meet,” to be entertained, to exchange views. But they can quickly turn into toxic environments of intimidation, misguidance, and misinformation, especially for the youngest and most vulnerable among us. There is, unfortunately, mounting evidence pointing to a link between social media use and depression. But how did social media go from being a technological marvel that would facilitate human connection to a threat to our mental health?

SNF Dialogues, as part of the 2022 SNF Nostos Conference on health, will talk with young people from around the globe about social media and the mental imprint it’s leaving on their generation, the so-called “Generation Social.”

The Dialogues discussion will take place on Friday, June 24 at 17:00 (EEST) on the Alternative Stage of the Greek National Opera at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center. Learn more about the SNF Nostos Conference 2022 program and register for free to attend the Dialogues discussion and the rest of the Conference program.

The SNF Dialogues are curated and moderated by Anna-Kynthia Bousdoukou and are held through journalism nonprofit iMEdD (incubator for Media Education and Development).
