Sabria David is co-founder of the Slow Media Institut.
She has been on panels and talks like at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, the Frankfurt Bookfair and other international conferences. She is with Benedikt Köhler and Jörg Blumtritt author of the “Slow Media Manifesto“ which had a global impact. It has been translated in several languages and is referred to, debated, taught and discussed in over 30 countries.

Her current book is entitled "Die Sehnsucht nach dem nächsten Klick. Medienresilienz - wie wir glücklich werden in einer digitalen Gesellschaft". Together with sociologist Benedikt Köhler and data scientist Jörg Blumtritt, she wrote the Slow Media Manifesto in 2010, which has been translated into numerous languages and is the subject of research worldwide, and the Declaration of Liquid Culture in 2012. Her focus is on research-based counselling and promotion of digital use skills and cultural techniques as well as media resilience.

Her work addresses the question of how we as people, as organisations and as a society can deal productively with the effects of digital change and how the shift to a good and resilient digital society can succeed. This also in the European context together with the Federal Agency for Civic Education and the EU Commission.

She developed the "Interaction Model for Digital Occupational Safety and Health" (IDA), a prevention and counselling concept that combines behavioural and situational prevention. On this basis, she and her cooperation partner TÜV Rheinland developed a management system and the "Digitaler Arbeitsschutz" standard. The interaction model of digital occupational safety and health was presented and introduced with an exhibit on the MS Wissenschaft, the exhibition ship of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, in 2014.

Sabria David has been a member of the Board of Directors of Wikimedia Deutschland since 2014. The board is the honorary management and control body of the country organisation behind the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia. Following her re-election, she is now Deputy Chair of the Presidium. The focus of her work there is strategy, communication and society, politics, values.
