Free Connected Minds Conference 2020
The Free Connected Minds (FCM) conference aims at exploring, through interactive debates and panels, a fresh set of ideas on the impact of the digital era on politics, culture, economics and social relations. The conference raises as a main topic, the impact of ever-changing innovative social and digital media on the present and future of humankind.
The world today is a very different one from just a few months ago. COVID-19 has fueled unprecedented change and the most volatile and vulnerable societies struggle to cope with this rapid development. The MENA Region is no exception in this regard. But the MENA region is packed with creativity, and engagement. FNF and its partners connects those free minds to support ideas that tackle the needs of a society in desperate times.
The 9th FCM conference in its first virtual edition was held in September 2020 in a hybrid format merging in-person participation with virtual broadcasting and featured many high-profile speakers and moderators, such as Arab League Secretary General, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, who debated vital and sometimes controversial topics in the MENA region and around the globe.
