Civil Society 4.0 - Refugees and Digital Self Organization

About This Series

Self-organization has been essential for thousands of refugees arriving in Germany. In the last years, refugees' organizations have been struggling for their right to stay, to move and to live in dignity. Volunteers and supporters have been engaging to improve the newcomers' living conditions. Together, refugees, volunteers and supporters build the new civil society of our times. Digital tools are essential to keep self-organization going. What needs to be done today? What are the challenges to be solved? “Civil Society 4.0. – Refugees and Digital Self-Organization” brings together refugees, volunteers, activists, digital developers, theorists and artists to develop strategies and critically reflect on the current situation. The aim is to discuss problems and identify solutions, to analyze and visualize what’s missing. Working Groups with experts from different fields develop instruments for action. Learning Workshops transmit know-how of digital technologies and empowerment. The Refugee Hackathon will be carried on.

In cooperation with Asyl-in.de, Chaos Computer Club Berlin e.V., Refugee Hackathon, Maptime Berlin, metroZones, Migration Hub, Refugee Emancipation e.V., reboot.fm, We Are Born Free! Empowerment Radio
