Humans spend an average of four hours a day staring at smartphones, amounting to almost fifteen years across the lifespan. What is it about screens that makes them so difficult for us to resist, and how can we reclaim our time and well-being from an industry that thrives on our attention? How has the age of COVID-19—a time when many of us are forced into social isolation—changed our relationship with screens, and how can we manage our relationship with them when they are our primary means of connecting to family, friends, and the workplace?
Why Should You Attend?
Join Adam Alter (Author & Professor NYU) as he explains why most of us spend so many hours each week staring at screens, why screens hamper our well-being, and—most critically—how we can reclaim our time and attention. There are lessons here for everyone, from older adults to teens; from the parents of young children to teachers and policymakers.
