Apps & Software that help create Safer Spaces: A first overview and talk with Che Harvey form AwarenessPass and Mirca Lotz from Safe the Dance
In recent years many apps and software solutions have been invented dealing with anti-discrimination, safer spaces, and inclusion. Mirca from Safe the Dance will provide a first overview and discuss their respective advantages and disadvantages and their respective limits. We have additionally invited Berlin based product designer Che Harvey, one of the inventors of AwarenessPass, an app that provides in context educational content and digital verification for event spaces and organizers to help teach consent, healthy boundaries, and sexual health understanding. Users can take quick lessons on their phone and receive digital credentials that grant access to events like parties, clubs, meetups, and munches.
