Civil Society 4.0 – Refugees and Digital Self Organization
Thu, Mar 3 – Sat, Mar 5, 2016

Refugees, volunteers, activists, digital developers, theorists and artists gather to discuss tools and strategies for refugee’s self-organization. The situation in Germany is changing dramatically. New challenges are coming up. What needs to be done? What is important for empowerment and self-organization? In working groups, refugees and non-refugees activists and their supporters meet to analyze the current needs and develop responses.

Language & Communication
Language is essential for self-determination, but residence status determines access to German classes. What approaches promote communicative competence? How can communications with public authorities be optimized?
