Building the first Responsible Technology Hub in Germany


The Responsible Technology Hub (RTH) is a youth and young-professionals led initiative focusing on bringing attention to make technology more responsible.

The development of responsible technology that is fully aligned with humanistic values is not a given. Participants must be reflective and committed to shaping it in the most responsible way possible. Discussions around responsible technologies are already being held by stakeholders in industry, policy making, and academia.

Even though young people are most affected by the coming digital innovation, they barely have a voice in the process that shapes this development. High levels of expertise and a scattered network of responsible technology enthusiasts make it even more difficult to formulate a common voice, vision, and ignite change.

The voices of young people must be strengthened.

To achieve this, the voices of young people must be strengthened and connected stakeholders beyond their silos, to ensure that young generations are heard in debates on the future development of technology.

Thus the work of this project focuses on three key areas:
  1. RTH is a space that connects responsible technology enthusiasts across their individual silos in industry, policy making, academia, or civil society.
  2. RTH offers educational material that helps understand different technologies and how they shape our societies.
  3. RTH engages in advocacy to ensure that technological solutions are conceptualized, designed, deployed, and used in ways that are in line with humanistic values and contribute to the greater good of society.

The younger generations are not only the leaders of tomorrow. They are already here and need to be heard.
