Michal, a young journalism MA student in London, conducted several interviews in Brussels with keynote speakers. Michal has kindly provided us with video material and photos. Here, he sets out his thoughts on the symposium. We’re very grateful for Michal’s generous input.
On the symposium, I had a chance to talk with people who are smarter and more experienced than me, and very inspiring. I love these kind of meetings because it encourages my desire to grow and to do more. As a student of journalism, I was honoured to interview professor Wydra, Mr. Giovannucci, and Dan Blackman – and all of them generously gave me their time and shared their wisdom. My takeaway from the symposium may be summed up in one sentence: our generation needs to be more educated in moral issues, not only how to use technology; we need to learn what it means to live in community across borders and discuss even complicated issues in an atmosphere of friendship.
