The agenda for Stream Europe 2018 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream Europe participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page.
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream Europe team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

Local Welcome

How might we design experiences and platforms that build trust and connection?

In a world of declining trust, our beliefs and experiences are increasingly driving the choices we make as consumers and citizens. The past year has seen an almost universal decline in public trust for social media platforms – but while trust declines, belief is on the rise. The Edelman Earned Brand study revealed that 64% of consumers now buy on belief; choosing, switching, avoiding or boycotting a brand based on where it stands on political or social issues. Since founding Local Welcome in 2015, I’ve been learning how to design shared experiences that build trust and connection in a divided and lonely world, and how technology might help us to scale our impact. We’ve learned a lot about inclusive rituals, so I’d be happy to share some stories and I’m keen to hear your thoughts and experience, particularly about brand democracy.
