WIAD 18 Theme: "IA for Good".

We would like you to think in the direction of how might we use IA to protect human civilization from misinformation. One way to approach the topic is to consider that nowadays we struggle to make sense of the abundance of information and sources. We don’t know who to trust, so we believe what we want and can be easily manipulated. Some digital places are enabling ignorance, hate, alienation, and polarization to grow.


What is World IA Day?

World Information Architecture Day is a one-day annual celebration of this phenomenon. Hosted in dozens of locations across the world by local organizers on February 24th, we focus on telling stories of information being architected by everyone from teachers to business owners; technologists to artists; designers to product managers.
