JPN The Emergence of Creative AI
Tobias Ahlin, Minecraft
In this talk, Ricardo will approach visual and digital communication in terms of social and environmental campaigns, but also around how to create engagement with new and younger audiences, as well as how circularity should be at the center of the discussion. How should universities engage? How should the government support and promote better conditions to create content around social and environmental impact? And how to engage with big brands to become more conscious without getting into greenwashing? These are some of the questions Ricardo will answer throughout his talk.
