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!
- Certainly, the Internet of Things (Iot) was a hot topic at re:publica Dublin. Read more about the "Trust me! The need for security and transparency in innovation age".
- It’s only been a month since re:publica headed out on its digital field trip across Europe. We touched down in Dublin for the #rpDUB from 7 - 8 September and then headed straight on to Thessaloniki for #rpTHE from 11 - 13 September. Watch our re:cap Videos here.
- 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.
