The Age of Online Activism

Posted on

 

Through the tools of the internet and social media, online / digital activism has emerged as an alternative way for people to share their critical views on society, economics and politics. Does online activism support democracy and accountability or is it merely a way to give people a sense of engagement without effecting real change and solutions? Our guest: Hilda Rac

Conspicuous Consumption

Posted on

 

In what ways do we within society participate in conspicuous consumption? How does conspicuous consumption disrupt our personal, social and economic lives? How much do we know and understand of how we decide what to spend our money on? Why do people in every income bracket feel that they are just getting by? Why is household debt at an all-time high? How does the pattern of conspicuous consumption distract us from what is really valuable in our lives? Why are depression and suicide rates so high in developed countries? And how come we are never satisfied? This and much more discussed today with Maite Zamora Moreno and JL Kenney

The Psychology of Activism

Posted on

Why has Activism never worked as a holistic solution to the problems that we face in this world? What psychological factors are at play that make people seem to be so apathetic to our world? How is it that we cognitively comprehend that something is not right in this world, yet we don’t make the effort to stop and change these problems? Why do we find it so difficult to stand up for what is right in this world? How is our fear of associating with negativism linked to our fear of change? We’ll discuss this and more in today’s hangout with +Kim Amourette

The Psychology and Economics of Advertising

Posted on

Transmitido en vivo el 13/07/2014

How does Advertising affect our Economy and Society? Advertising is the way it is because it works — a good advert will mean increased sales for the business. What are the methods used in advertising? Little is known of the effects of changing peoples’ attitudes or how far these effects reach in our daily lives. What are the effects of advertising on our economy — the effects that no one talks about? How could advertising be changed to benefit the economy and our society? Wouldn’t it be better for every person if psychology was used to help us understand ourselves better, instead of exploiting our lack of understanding for monetary gain? Join us to discuss these topics in today’s Live Hangout with Maite Zamora Moreno and Cerise Poolman

Immigrating to a Better Life?

Vídeo Posted on

Immigration is happening at a more rapid speed than ever before in the history of human civilization. But what are its consequences? And are the causes of immigration only found in war- and poverty-torn countries themselves, with people seeing an opportunity to make a better life for themselves abroad? Or is the situation by a large extent also caused by an interconnected and complex political situation brought about by an economic system without social responsibility?

[42] Democratizing Political Activism

Vídeo Posted on

A new political culture is required for actual change in society. When people come together in political parties, conflicts usually arise. In an old paradigm, these problems are solved by means of hierarchy where higher ranks decide what gets done and what doesn’t. Can real democracy exist in a hierarchical structure? How will we then solve these conflicts and how are we going to decide what to do if there are no more leaders having the last word? We’ll be discussing with Martijn de Graaf about this, so share with us your comments, questions and perspectives too throughout the hangout

#WaveofAction: Real Activism or Not?

Vídeo Posted on

Demanding change is a common theme these days, yet does it take into account what creating change in fact is at an individual and collective level?
