Stolen Focus: How to repair our broken attention

Thursday, March 3, 2022 4:00 PM ET | 1:00 PM PST

The average teenager believes they can follow six forms of media at the same time. But, what is this doing to their (and our) attention spans? Join us for Action Network Live! as journalist Johann Hari breaks down the “enormous illusion” of multitasking. 

Together with Fairplay’s Executive Director Josh Golin, Johann will explore the effects of our screen-obsessed culture on children and adults alike and examine how we can all pitch in to take on the forces that have stolen our attention.

Tune in on Thursday, March 3 at 4 PM ET (1 PM PT) for this must-see webinar!


Plus, send us your questions! We all have a lot of questions, and we want to base this event on yours. Please submit your questions when registering or email them to info@screentimenetwork.org.
