Getwired 2015: The Loss of Electromagnetic Innocence
The recent GetWired2015 conference sponsored by Beneficial Environments was a response to concerns about the proliferation of wifi and mobile phone technologies.
The conference objective was to find and promote solutions to the problems arising both in terms of how to protect and shield vulnerable groups such as children and the aged but also how to encourage new safer products to be made available. In contrast to many conferences focusing on the health effects, we have looked at solutions to the problem of widespread electrosensitivity and increasing electromagnetic pollution.
This is the first video release from Get Wired 2015.
Get Wired 2015 was organised in association with Stop Smart Meters! UK.
Professor Victor Newman, the conference chair, is an expert in motivating organisations to innovate. He speaks about how new, safer technologies will become available to us all. He sees that fashionable new products will play their part as the world adjusts to the new reality of lost electro-innocence.
We do hope you enjoy his talk about how organisations will respond to the need to reduce electromagnetic pollution.
Please feel free to share the video.
