2022 - "The Boring revolution – reinventing bureaucracy, governance and democracy”

Indy Johar is an architect, co-founder of 00 (project00.cc) and most recently Dark Matter, a field laboratory focused on radically redesigning the bureaucratic & institutional infrastructure of our cities, regions and towns for a more democratic, distributed great transition.

Indy will be talking about how to build, create and maintain a sustainable future, we need to start a boring revolution. Believing that talking only about the cool parts of science (like AI, new technology and robots) is not going to help us form this revolution.

We need to go back to basics. We need to go over things like bureaucracy, governance and the principles of democracy to create trust. Without this trust simple things go wrong. We need to empower people in order to form a new type of government. We need to reinvent the concept of governance, and we need to do it now. To have the “boring” conversation is becoming evermore critical.
