Anette Novak - Media Literacy

by Music Tech Fest | MTF Podcast

Anette Novak is the Director General of the Swedish Media Council - the governmental agency in charge of empowering children and youth to navigate an increasingly complex media landscape - both online and off. That organisation’s role says a lot, not only about the changing nature of media in general but also about Sweden itself.

MTF Director Andrew Dubber met with Anette over coffee in her office at the Film Institute in Stockholm and spoke about why Sweden has zero censorship, how technologies like facial recognition, AI and immersive games raise ethical rather than moral questions, and the sheer degree of high-level research that goes into fostering a healthy, curious and literate society.
