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.
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!
- 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.
How can you use WhatsApp to get news to younger audiences? Hannah Schwär and Dorothea Schmitz explained how at the re:publica in Thessaloniki.
