Digital technology and the Internet enter everyday life more and more. It is critical to understand the challenges they pose to democracy, human rights, social life, and sustainability.
Getting informed, discussing difficult questions, and organizing collective action requires face-to-face contact and welcoming spaces in the city where people have the opportunity to get engaged.
We are forming a coalition of organizations in Switzerland working on important Values of Internet Technologies to establish a public platform where citizens can get access to important information, and create opportunities for collective learning and action.
We start by setting a regular monthly appointment, every 7th of the month at 7pm.
Due to the quarantine, until further notice, the events/courses/workshops/panels will take place online, on a web conferencing server hosted by Digitale Gesellschaft, based on the open source software BigBlueButton, a good alternative to proprietary systems like Zoom. This is the current programme:
May 2020: Basic computer protection & security of messengers and video conferences June 2020: Surfing anonymously and with little trace
Later the main venue will be a very central and accessible location in the city, the L200 collective space.
Contact us to stay informed and/or organize one of the events.
