Our Motto: CASH!

Every design, every idea, every change, no matter how urgent, faces financial questions at some point. The roots and effects of the current crises - of war, climate, and energy, but also the causes of social injustice and poverty, are closely interwoven with the financial market, with profits or losses, with greed or generosity. With the having and not having of financial means.

That's why we want to follow the course of money at re:publica 2023. Where does it come from, where does it travel? What are state tasks in digitization, what is being privatized and why, and what do public welfare-oriented alternatives look like? We want to ask ourselves whether democracies and social systems are luxury goods that have fallen out of time, or whether it is not rather the construct of the global market economy that is threatening to collapse under the consequences of the crises. We want to discuss this and much more with you this year. After all: It is time to talk about money! #CASH


The Call for Participation for the Conference & Hands On program ends on 14 February 2023 (23:59 CET). The deadline for Off Stage is 12 March 2023.

What awaits you is a ton of fun, the world’s best audience, exciting discussions and a legendary closing party. Come be a part of the bigger picture and, with your very individual contribution, help make re:publica the most exciting conference for digital society in Europe.
