Event 6Privacy and Social Media 

Rosemary Hill, 1:45 pm, Saturday, 18th May, 2019

Should we be worried about big data mining and monitoring? What practical steps can we take to avoid risks of exploitation? What social norms are emerging on social media platforms? How should we behave when we use them? What do we like about what other people do? What annoys us? Share views on the benefits and the dis-benefits of this invasive medium in our lives.

Event 8Consumerism: helping or hindering?

Rosemary Hill, 1:45 pm, Saturday, 26th October, 2019

Consumerism is a corner stone of capitalism. But is it contributing to our greater good or propelling us towards the destruction of our planet? How does consumerism manifest in our lives: uptake of new technologies, fashion choices? What motivates our drive to consume? Search for happiness? Keeping up with the 'Jones's'?

Event 9Goal Setting: how important is it?

TBA, 1:45 pm, Saturday, 8th February, 2020

Setting a scary, unrealistic goal can be both terrifying and motivating. In what ways do we use goal setting in a positive way in our lives? Can goal setting produce negative affects in our life? How does goal setting influence priorities in our life? What other ways can we motivate ourselves to improve?
