Become an advisor for the Cities’ Digital Rights Helpdesk!
At MozFest, the Cities Coalition for Digital Rights, UN Habitat, and BetaNYC would like to start a Digital Rights Helpdesk connecting officials and workers in city governments with expert advisors on ethical AI and digital rights. The helpdesk will support city governments in navigating the ethics and digital rights considerations of local digital strategies, policies and projects. Civil servants, city leaders, and service providers can share questions with advisors (including researchers, experts, creatives, makers) who can offer thought-provoking questions, project examples, policies, and prompts for cities. This session will introduce and catalyze the helpdesk project so it continues after MozFest and Open Data Week.
This session is open to all, but especially geared toward city stakeholders implementing digital projects/policies who could benefit from such a resource, as well as people who would want to take part in responding to their questions or advising them in meeting their needs.
