This week more than 70,000 people will come together to join in a global conversation at Social Media Week (SMW) a week-long conversation hosted across six continents, and connecting more than 1 million people around the globe.
We're stoked to be a part of the feature event, and event more excited for what Social Media Week represents — a global conversation around connected humanity, and what it means today to live, work, and play. We're also teaching live master classes from their highline stages — and we have discount passes for people in our community who want to attend (see details below).
Social Media Week 2015: Upward Mobility and The Rise of The Connected Class
"We're living in a time of unprecedented human connectivity. The world is changing and evolving at an extraordinary pace. Together we must work to gain deeper understanding of how we can achieve more in a future where more than 6 billion people on the planet will connect to each other."
The connected class is "an emerging subset of our global society defined by those with access and connectivity," as SMW explains, which today includes approximately 3 billion people in the world. This figure will change as our global citizens rapidly join the online conversation, with projections that 6 billion people will be online by 2022.
What does this mean for us, and for the future of connected humanity? How will technology impact the way that we live, work, and create? When 75 percent of the global population is interconnected, how will the world be (re)organized, disrupted, and shifted? Will business still function the same (probably not), and will our urban environments look the same?
With speakers from Martha Stewart to Pete Cashmore to the Revered Jesse Jackson, the event also includes jousting drones, roaming robots, and other surprises. Join us in person (or watch online)!
An Event to Globally Connect — Join the Online and Offline Conversations
The conversations are centered around the following themes, as described on the SMW website:
LIVE: "How will our ability to connect, share and exchange information with many more human beings positively impact our daily lives, our habits and our connection to humanity? Where will we look for trusted sources of information, and how will public opinion continue to shape those standards? How will data and personalization of information change the way we look at online identities and privacy?"
WORK: "What will the future of work look like and in what ways will we become more productive and efficient? What opportunities are available to entrepreneurs to build products and services for 6 billion connected citizens? How will the identities of brands continue to evolve and direct the consumer journey to find and connect with their products and services?"
CREATE: "How will ideas spread in an increasingly connected world, rapidly transforming ideas from small beginnings to epic scale? What will different cultures learn from each other, and how will those lessons lead to new ideas, inventions and innovations and empower us to achieve more? How will our ease in communications, no longer limited by time or distance, allow for improved collaboration?"
