Earlier this year I had the distinct pleasure of hosting yet another one of Axhoundation’s intensely well-curated interdisciplinary seminars. This year’s theme Sanning och Konsekvens – which in Swedish means both “Truth and Consequence” and “Truth or Dare” – covered topics ranging from Fake News to No-Till Farming. UR televised the whole thing, which you can see on Kunskapskanalen today 15-18, on Sunday Dec 10th at 9-12, and thereafter on UR Play.
Among the speakers: Paul Rapacioli of TheLocal, Jeppe Wikström of Last Night in Sweden, Maureen Hoppers from ÖppnaDörren, Jan Helin from SVT, Åsa Wikforss and Gustav Nilsonne from Stockholm University, Maria Wolrath Söderberg from Södertörns Högskola, Ola Rosling from Gapminder, Alexandra Silfverstolpe Tolstoy from Data Act Lab, Morten Kjærum from Raoul Wallenberg Institute, Ebba Åkerman and Lina Makso from Invitationsdepartementet, Jabou Foon from Sisters in business, David R. Montgomery from University of Washington, Anna Westerbergh from SLU, William Håkansson from Vultus, the marvelous Angela Oguntala of Greyspace and yours truly (although I as the moderator have probably been mostly edited out).
