INTEGRITY 20 PROGRAM FOR SCHOOLS

Griffith University is excited to again, for the third year, be offering a limited number of sponsored places for students in years 11 and 12 to attend Integrity 20’16, free of charge.

Through a series of keynotes, conversations, debates and more, Integrity 20 examines some of the most challenging and complex global issues of our time. They are issues that are potentially transformative in their impact and which affect everyone on the planet and their futures.

Human rights and global insecurity are the underpinning themes of the 2016 program. Sessions will examine:

  • The many faces of extremism and terror;
  • Writers under arrest: freedom of speech and state censorship;
  • The global refugee crisis;
  • Ethics of cyberculture: hate speech, public shaming and mob justice;
  • Moral Machines: from smart cars to killer robots.

The program features twenty top minds from Australia and around the world. They are philosophers, activists, journalists, dissidents, artists and academics. They are religious, business and government leaders. They join us to promote bold, new ideas, challenge perceptions, foster public debate, and inspire action to change.

Please note, full program details and speakers will be announced in July.

 

Who should attend?

Students studying humanities and social sciences, information and communication technologies and sciences. And anyone who is enjoys intelligent, erudite conversation about issues that matter.

The day was extraordinarily enlightening and passionate. Every person on stage brought something else to the table- a new point of view, an interesting story, a great passion or a new life experience to share. I would go so far as to say it is the best conference I have attended and one which I absolutely feel we need to see more of…
