The digital age has radically democratized communication – allowing almost anyone to create, publish and consume content. But technological advancement has also decimated the news media and made it more difficult for citizens to separate truth from falsehood – resulting in dangerous declines in trust in leaders, institutions, governments and businesses. Join us for a dynamic dialogue between an academic, an archivist, a journalist and a professional communicator – each a national leader in their field – as they explore the implications of the digital revolution on our democracy, and what we can do to preserve it.
