EYE2020

The spread of the internet and digital devices have fundamentally transformed our societies. On a personal level, many of these social transformations have been positive: we can contact almost anyone at any time of the day, we can easily share our holiday pictures, we can look up any question we don’t immediately know the answer to. But our phones can also cause loneliness, social isolation and damages our self-esteem.
