Attracting more people is one of the the main challenges faced by communities, whether they pursue the goals of solidarity, environmental action or any other. For Pia Mancini, it’s because “apathy is peculiarity (property) of the system, not bug (error)”.

“The status quo is not interested in people’s participation because it wants to remain the status quo. We’ve learned from this and are doing ant work to engage communities in technology.”

Currently Societies are experiencing a “moment of transition” very strong,” says the entrepreneur. Between the different horizons, the current paradigm of “which is already in decline” and the future “which is not yet here” emerges. “What do we do between them?” the interlocutor asks.

On the one hand, Mancini sees optimistic signs “which mark transformative innovations”, such as projects assisted by Open Collective. However, there are also some pessimistic signs, “such as the fact that if we don’t build technology with the losers of that system, we build it with the winners.”

Including the less fortunate is important because it creates “a more inclusive social infrastructure that translates into laws, value systems, and beliefs,” he explains. And technology plays an important role in this, since “it is not neutral, but affects the vision of the world.”

In conclusion, Pia Mancini stressed that the responsibility for the approach and participation lies not with other people, but with the developers of new technologies. who should encourage their inclusion. “The burden is not on the average person, but on those of us who create technology, that we have to go out and find those people,” he said.
