Abstract

This workshop is the first step towards an emerging research community that problematises aspects related to collective consciousness. Collective consciousness sits at the intersection of - and goes beyond - research on Collective Intelligence, Collective Awareness and Behavioural Change. One of the goals of this workshop is to construct a working definition of collective consciousness which responds to a realised shortcoming in our understanding of digital technologies in mediating the transactions between people's capability to be aware and reflect, and their capacity to change behaviour and take action. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners who have an explicit intent to work critically with how digital technologies augment our collective experiences and behaviours.
