ReEnTrust call for participants

Do you trust online platforms or services? Do you care?

We would like to invite people aged 16-25 years old to take part in an interactive workshop which will explore participants’ views and experiences in relation to trust when using online platforms and services (e.g., Google, BBC, Netflix, Amazon, Facebook, Instagram).

When?   Saturday 10th November 2 pm – 4 pm

Where? at the New Art Exchange Gallery (NAE), 39 – 41 Gregory Boulevard, NG7 6BE, Nottingham


No previous knowledge is needed.

This activity is part of an interdisciplinary research project between the Universities of Nottingham, Oxford and Edinburgh called ReEnTrust, which explores new technological opportunities to enhance/re-build user’s trust, and identify how this may be achieved in ways that are user-driven and responsible.

The session involves interactive activities (paper-based) and friendly discussion. Participants’ contribution to this workshop will provide them, researches, regulatory bodies and society in general, a better understanding of what makes online platforms and services trustable.

What else will you gain for taking part?

  • Develop your confidence and skills in team work, debate, and communication.
  • Enhance critical thinking when making decisions online.
  • To share your views and suggestions for change in relation to trust when using the Internet
  • A valuable experience to add to your CV, job applications and personal statements
  • Experience of participating in a national civic activity, part of the 2018 annual Festival of Social Sciences
  • A £10 voucher as a thank you for your time
