inform | defend | attack
Friday, 21 September 2018, 10:00 – 18:00
Volksbühne main stage, Roter Salon

A conference for all people who want to help shape the digital future and inform themselves about current and future debates: What’s next for the Internet? Which digital world do we want to live in? What steps must be taken to improve the protection of our basic rights online as well?

In a collaboration with the Volksbühne, creates a space in which people can swap ideas, both straightforward and highly nuanced, about the most relevant current digital topics in three parallel tracks over the course of a day. And all of this is not only about (net) politics, it’s also about digital culture.

A few selected parts of the programme and guests follow:

- bestselling author Tom Hillenbrand speaks about the effects of dystopian science fiction on internet policy debates.

- Senator for Economic Affairs Ramona Pop explains how Berlin can still become a digital city.

- Member of the European Parliament Julia Reda provides updates on the status of EU copyright law reform.

- Senator for Cultural Affairs Klaus Lederer reveals what must happen for Berlin and its digital culture to re-experience a golden 20s.

- net activist Max Schrems reports on how he began a successful data protection suit against Google and Facebook.

- author Zoë Beck, journalist Sophie Passmann and hacker Constanze Kurz demonstrate how entertaining net-political topics can be.

- Leonhard Dobusch, “internet representative” on the ZDF television council, explains how online public media could be rethought.

- Also featuring the Chapeau Club’s digital trio, bullshit bingo with some top politician buzz words about digitalisation, and many workshops on digital self-defence.
