re:connecting Europe 2017



re:publica touched down in Dublin from 8-9 September and then journeyed across the continent to dock in Thessaloniki from 11-13 September. For a total of 5 amazing days, we got together with decision-makers, activists, organisations and the local communities to debate, discuss solutions and connect Europe.


Thank you so much for being a part of re:connecting EUROPE. We’ve prepared a little survey for you and look forward to hearing your feedback.


We prepared a special treat for re:publica Thessaloniki: A panel was co-curated together with this year’s rpTHE partner, Reworks Agora and their Reworks Festival. The Reworks Festival in Thessaloniki takes place directly after the re:publica, from September 13 to 17 2017.


These were some of our #rpTHE highlights from day 2! We’ve also got few tips for what’s in store today. Check it out.

Media Convention


At #MCB17, Adam B. Ellick answered our questions about the recent developments in journalism, and the new set of skills this requires of reporters,  the importance of brand awareness and audience development and the balance of entertainment and "serious" reporting. 


Throughout his career, John Gaeta has managed to harness the latest technologies for creative storytelling. In our vodeo interview, her tells us about what drives him in his creative work. 


Tomorrow at 10:30 a.m., Berlin's governing mayor Michael Müller will open MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin and re:publica. The two events taking place simultaneously at STATION Berlin are once again expecting about 8,000 visitors from over 60 countries. Here's a short run-down of some speaker and programme highlights.


Jim Egan, CEO, BBC Global News Ltd, will be part of the MCB17-Panel on Journalism caught in a credibility dilemma. In our interview, he talks about how the media landscape changed in the last ten years. He also explains the BBC’s strategy in these times, where reputable media outlets find it increasingly challenging to make themselves heard over the noise.
