In this episode of The Next Stage Queen Rania of Jordan talks about the perils of technology - addictive use and misinformation - as well as how it can be put to humanitarian use, particularly for the global refugee crisis.
Queen Rania talks about the “shameful paradox” of live in an age of technological convenience and instant gratification while “witnessing such human hardship” as a result of war, climate change and unequal distribution of wealth.
This sobering talk urges us to reassess our relationship with technology and ask ourselves how we can leverage new innovations to help those who need it most.
Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, Queen of Jordan was in conversation with Frederik Pleitgen, correspondent and anchor, CNN International on Centre Stage at Web Summit 2022.
