What’s the hashtag for this revolution?
From #solidarity to #occupy, we’re seeing the power of Internet-enabled political action all around us. Individuals can organize quickly, they can unify around ideas, they can find and spread information (and misinformation) with lightning speed. It’s obvious that virtual platforms can have real-world impact, from the Maghreb to Main Street / Benghazi to Boston / Syria to Wall Street (pick whatever you like best). The use of Internet-based tools as catalysts for political activism is well-established, and its momentum is growing.
How can we use these new forces in our global society to productively address the chronic problems of humanity? What are the limitations of these tools and movements? How can these new tools be used by decision-makers and others to cope with our future challenges? Where do the Internet and “real world” communities intersect, sharing real concern about the same issues? And how does this look in countries outside of Europe?
Join us on the 28th of November for an all-day Barcamp in Berlin to debate these questions. As part of the registration, you’re invited to propose your own session to the audience. Argue for your own ideas about what’s right and what’s practical. Help us find ways to direct this outstanding energy and creativity to solve problems beyond the present-day.
