#INNDEM2017 Speaker: Kal Turnbull

 

Name: Kal Turnbull

Topic: Change My View

Who?

 

Kal Turnbull is the founder of the internet forum ‘Change My View’,  which has led to interviews by NPR’s ‘Planet Money’, Slate magazine, and Wired magazine. Co-host of a new podcast that explores the forum’s content.

What?

 

Kal set out to do the impossible: cordon off a space for measured, civil conversation between people who believe in different things. Now there are over 450.000 members on ‘Change My View’ subreddit.

His presentation will detail the reasons he started ‘Change My View’, how it works, and what it has achieved. He hopes to demonstrate the benefits of such a forum, and the lessons we can learn going forward in everyday life, education, and democracy.
