CRITICAL INNOVATION AS A SOLUTION TO THE RISKS IN THE DIGITAL DEMOCRACY
We are exposed to more information than ever before, although a quick look at the world is sufficient to recognize that we are not wiser. Many of the problems of our immediate present and our close future are produced by new and innovative circumstances that have been promoted by human action itself. If we are to generate a growing impact on our political, environmental and human environment, we should be able to reproduce a social responsibility at the height of that impact.
Ethosfera assumes critical innovation not as a purely scientific or technical strategy but as a global a#itude in all spheres of public and civic life. We believe that all that is valuable in innovation can only be activated through its foundation on a recognizable tradition that provides us with an inalienable critical, cultural and moral capital.
One of the areas where the uncritical ambition of innovation and development has shown its most threatening and damaging condition for our democracies is found in the articulation of new spaces for public deliberation. Ethosfera was born with a vocation for convergence, dialogue and illustration of the strategic conditions that will determine our future political life, with special a#ention to polarization and media and digital democracy. If all criticism entails an emancipatory vocation, critical innovation aspires to provide instruments that allow us to free ourselves from the worst version of ourselves.
