And there she goes! The re:publica events we held in Berlin and #rpEUROPE in Dublin and Thessaloniki offered you an exciting programme. In the coming weeks and months leading to the next re:publica 2018 you have all the time in the world to revisit our conferences through videos, pictures and written articles.
2017 saw us hoisting our sails again and heading out to faraway waters. Our field trip continued! It wasn’t just our second #rpDUB in Dublin from 7 to 8 September 2017, we had another exciting destination on our agenda: Greece! That meant we had to do a little more packing this time around, because we headed straight on from the #rpDUB to the #rpTHE, taking place the same month from 11 to 13 September 2017 in Thessaloniki.
Our first international event went spectacularly in Ireland. On 20 October 2016, more than 200 participants from Ireland, Germany and other countries converged on re:publica Dublin. There they attended exciting sessions on three stages and discussed some of the most important topics concerning the digital society with our more than 30 speakers. It was very reminiscent of our first re:publica in Berlin in 2007.
Networking the digital society and creating spaces for the exchange of ideas has always been the aim of the re:publica. It has remained an international endeavour throughout the past eleven years. Once again this is exactly what we did in 2017 and we invited you to join us.The re:publica wouldn’t be the unique event that it is if it weren’t for your active participation, and we prepared quite an exciting package for you: our continued field trip!
- While at the re:publica Thessaloniki, we were able to meet up with Lefteris Kretsos, Greek State Secretary for Media and Communication. More in our video interview.
- We’d like to take the opportunity to present six of our speakers and our partners at WOMEX, who accompanied us to both conferences and helped carry the idea of a networked Europe to Dublin and Thessaloniki.
- 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.
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.
