13 years ago, netzpolitik.org started covering digital rights and politics. Since 2014 we are celebrating our birthday with a conference and a party. This year’s event is going to take place on September 1st at cinema Kosmos in Berlin, featuring talks about important ongoing and upcoming digital rights debates on two stages.
It’s all about politics
The program is offering a comprehensive overview about central challenges of a digital society for newcomers. Additionally, many talks will give an in-depth insight into specific issues – always from a civil society perspective, based on the values of fundamental rights and democracy.
The national elections and electoral campaigns will be featured, as well: We will assess the digital policies of the current administration, look forward to the debates of the next legislative term, and offer the latest insights into the debates on fake news, micro targeting, and social bots.
The program is a mixed one: We have talks in German and English. Please check it out!
Tickets for everybody!
We are very thankful for the financial support of the Federal Agency for Civic Education, Chaos Computer Club, Mozilla, and Wikimedia. Therefore, we can offer tickets that should be affordable to anybody interested in participating.
Ticket prices start at 10 Euro for digital rights activists as well as for people eligible for a discount – pupils, students and citizens collecting unemployment benefits (proof of evidence at the entry). Standard tickets are offered for 20 Euro. Professional tickets for members of organizations are offered for 50 Euro. Supporter tickets are offered to people who want to get a ticket and are willing to support the work of netzpolitik.org in general, whether for 250 or 500 Euro.

Party like there’s no surveillance
In the evening, an additional talk will kick off our birthday party at Mensch Meier, followed by last year’s best reader’s comments, and a quiz. Techno, disco, d’n’b, trap and punk’n’trash are going to keep you awake until dawn. Conference guests can participate for free.
