Die digitale Gesellschaft vernetzen und Raum für den Austausch von Ideen zu bieten, war schon immer ein Ziel der re:publica. Dabei ging es stets international zu und genau dazu freuen wir uns, euch auch 2017 wieder einzuladen! Die Auswirkungen der Digitalisierung auf Wirtschaft, Politik und Alltag sind schon längst europäisch. Mit re:connecting EUROPE wollen wir den Aufbau eines europaweiten Netzwerks der Kreativwirtschaft fördern. Wir sind gespannt auf neue Perspektiven auf unsere vernetzte Welt! Deshalb diskutiert mit uns: in Berlin, Dublin oder Thessaloniki! Mehr zu unserer Klassenfahrt im September 2017 findet ihr hier im Überblick.

Als Auftakt dazu gab es auf der re:publica 2017 in Berlin den re:connecting EUROPE-Space! Dank der Unterstützung des Auswärtigen Amtes konnten wir auf der #rp17 Akteurinnen und Akteure der Kreativwirtschaft aus den Hafenstädten Dublin und Thessaloniki willkommen zu heißen, um mit euch über gemeinsame Herausforderungen und Lösungen zu diskutieren, die AktivistInnen, GründerInnen und KünstlerInnen in Europa beschäftigen. 
 

Auf dem re:connecting EUROPE-Space wurden Projekte aus beiden Ländern vorgestellt, bei denen ihr euch besser kennenlernen, vernetzen und austauschen konntet. Außerdem haben wir den Blick über Europas Tellerrand gewagt und haben mit euch zusammen überlegt, was eigentlich eine re:publica im arabischen oder afrikanischen Raum bedeuten könnte. A network is only as strong as its nodes, so let's get re:connected!

  • Sunny Greece! Participants discuss outside at #rpTHE

    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.

  • Our funky #rpEUROPE logo and visual

    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!

  • One of many sessions at the Light House Cinema during #rpDUB
    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.
  • Impressions from Day 1 at #rpTHE
    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.

  • The re:publica team invites you to join them for the round table in Dublin. Come to the kick-off for the second #rpDUB in Ireland. We want to hear your feedback, your opinions, your ideas!

  • Gia sou Thessaloniki! The re:publica team invites you to join them for the first round table. Come to the kick-off for the first re:publica in Thessaloniki on 29 May 2017 in Greece. 

  • We hope that you were able to gather all sorts of new insights, meet old friends and left with armfuls of inspiration! Our look back at the #rp17, including all the important facts, and forward to the next re:publicas.

  • So many people, talks and discussions at the re:publica in Berlin – all asking the question: How can the re:publica spirit be internationalised? A visit to the re:connecting EUROPE Space.
