WHAT’S YOUR STORY?

Scroll

Sometimes, it’s great to be offline.

It’s our daily business to create new formats and ideas. One of which is: the EIGHTYDOTS Academy. It’s a loose series of sessions, which challenge conventional thinking, introduce innovative ideas and provide insights. Whether it’s cooperations such as Creative Mornings, SheSays Munich or the Munich Creative Business Week, we’re all ears for all kind of formats. Needless to say, our SKYDOT space is available for external events, too.

CULTURAL CONNECTIONS.

Digital communication happens in the blink of an eye, or rather a tap of the finger. We’re able to communicate all over the world, all the time, to any and all. How does global communication take into consideration cultural differences? How does intercultural work look like? What good does culture do in a digital world that is borderless per definition? During the Munich Creative Business Week, we hosted a discussion about intercultural "connectedness".

DIGITAL COMMUNICATION: THE END OF ‘GOOD’ LANGUAGE?

Another successful event with Creative Mornings Munich. This time we hosted and presented the topic for July: END. In recent years, there’s been quite a bit debate about how digital media (instant messaging services, social media) influence the way we use language. From hashtags, to new acronyms, words changing meaning (e.g. wall, feed) and the introduction of emojis - for digital natives, that’s all they know. But the way we use our language digitally ultimately has consequences on how we use language in the “real” world. However, not everybody is in favor of this development. Take for example the Oxford Word of the Year 2015: “ 😂 “, which sparked the good-old “It’s awful, the way kids talk these days. Our language is being ruined” conversation. Is it though? Can we consider emojis as words, or even language? Is our language really deteriorating? Or is what we experience here simply another typical case of language evolution?

SheSays Munich: Embrace Sustainability.

Living more sustainably and consuming mindfully is admirable - but comes with its share of challenges. It’s a commitment to the future, which demands respect for people and the environment. Our event organized by SheSays Munich brought together the brightest minds, who offer their own perspective on the future of sustainability from a variety of angles – from zero waste, green energy to food sharing. We exchanged on how everyone can get more involved in the community we all live in, planet earth and had very interesting discussions about the ‘baby steps’ from the consumer perspective that can help us live greener and happier. Head over to the News section to dive deeper into the panel group discussions.
