Does culture affect our virtual lives?

Do our virtual lives affect culture?


Brussels 28th – 30th June 2013

If you are involved in intercultural work, research or training you might be interested in exploring the relevance of the technology revolution we are going through and its affect, and vice versa, on cultural values in work, play and life.

If so maybe you’d like to meet with other interested, and interesting, people in Brussels in June to:

  1. Explore the concepts of Internet, Technology and Culture and see if there is opportunity to build some new elements into our training.

  2. Look into possible areas of study or research

  3. Find out things we didn’t know we didn’t know and to stimulate ideas!

  4. To explore opportunities for collaboration

  5. Most importantly - to have an enjoyable week-end in one of Europe’s most exciting cities!

The format of the event will be small group discussions, 4 or 5 people, with a topic leader, followed by larger group evaluation and documenting of outcomes.

The timetable will be roughly as follows:

  1. Friday 28th June: Activity to be decided

  2. Saturday 29th June: Approx. 9:00 – 18:00.  Subject conversations

  3. Sunday 30th June: Approx. 09:30-13:00. Summarise learning, insights, actions, opportunities and more

Note that it would be feasible to attend only the Saturday or only Saturday and Sunday.

Topics of conversation will be driven by the attendees - it is your conversation. However the possible topics have been identified so far click here to see what we have. If you want add anything send an email to

COST: The only cost will be a small charge to cover room rental, it was €30 in Milan, and of course whatever cost you incur getting to Brussels.
