After the successful first Bits & Bäume conference in 2018, the conference is returning for a second round in Berlin. The name (Bits & Trees in English) says it all: environmental and technology communities are to be networked with socio-ecologically operating small digital companies and founders in order to jointly develop concrete solutions for the just and sustainable shaping of our world. The aim is to discuss political strategies and governance proposals as well as to learn from each other on the basis of best practice examples. This can then be used to further develop ideas on how climate and environmental protection, social justice, democracy and fundamental rights can be implemented in the digital age.
Submissions are still being sought until June 7 – from program contributions to startup pitches. Options exist to make proposals either in German or English, greatly expanding the scope of the conference.
With the call for participation, people from civil society organisations, progressive actors from academia, business and politics are invited to help shape the conference with discussion panels, lightning talks, project presentations, campaign planning, (hands-on) workshops, info tables, installations, films, hackathons, design thinking sessions, interviews, live podcasts, cultural formats, world cafés, craft workshops or art performances. In addition, startups and other ventures are explicitly invited to present their innovative approaches to solutions.
