BSS Congress 2024
8th of May

The theme of this year's congress is: 

Building Bridges

The power of connections

In our digital era, the significance of online connections cannot be overstated. These connections through digital platforms have revolutionized the way we communicate, collaborate, and engage with others, transcending geographical boundaries and time constraints. One of the key benefits of online connections is the accessibility they provide. With just a few clicks, individuals can connect with others from around the world, regardless of physical distance.

In this context, ethical considerations regarding privacy emerge as pressing concerns amidst the vast expanse of online platforms. We grapple with the complexities of online tracking, where every click and interaction leaves a distinct digital trace.

Yet, amidst this sprawling digital landscape, there exists an undeniable yearning for genuine human connection. We recognize the intrinsic value of nurturing meaningful relationships offline as a means to combat social isolation and foster bonds that transcend the virtual realm. Addressing the profound implications of social isolation on mental health and well-being underscores the vital role of community and support systems in offline settings. It is in face-to-face encounters that true connections flourish, where empathy and understanding find fertile ground.

Throughout this congress, we explore the dual nature of social media - offering both avenues for connection and challenges to authenticity. We explore social media's impact on perceptions and behaviours is complemented by a deliberate focus on the importance of offline connections. We'll delve into effective strategies for nurturing friendships, building networks, and overcoming barriers to in-person interaction.

By embracing the power of both online and offline connections, our shared endeavour is to construct bridges that unite us in our common humanity.
