How Technology Can Move the World
Re:publica is one of the most important conferences on digital culture. Founded in 2007 in Berlin, it has steadily grown into an international event. This year’s conference will take place at STATION Berlin, from May 8-10, 2017.
This Year’s Focus – Human Rights
Since its inception as a blogger meeting with 700 participants, re:publica has grown into an influential “society conference”. In 2016 alone, over 8,000 participants and 770 speakers from 60 countries participated in the 500 hour-long program.
Re:publica Berlin covers a wide-range of topics pertaining to digital culture. From net politics and technical innovations, to culture, media, health, and education – people from all walks of life can come together and share ideas.
Re:publica 2017 will provide a platform to those who fiercely support human rights. This year’s motto “Love Out Loud!” will put the spotlight on people and organizations that fight against hate, violence, and injustice.
