MORE WORLD – Join BG’s 20th anniversary initiative on communal tools for planetary challenges! #climatechange #migration #digitalization
Climate change, migration and digitalization: these are the greatest challenges in the current phase of globalization. How can we meet them? In its 20th year, the Berliner Gazette, under the motto MORE WORLD, is highlighting communal practices that confront these planetary challenges.
*Call for Contributions*
The BG’s 20th anniversary project MORE WORLD invites you to explore together with us communal tools for planetary challenges. We sense a great urgency now to make all sorts of case studies and small and large examples accessible to the general public. To this end, we have created a special section in our Internet newspaper berlinergazette.de. This is an open forum to which writers, researchers, activists, artists, journalists and all kinds of other producers of (subjugated) knowledge are invited to contribute reports, essays, interviews, etc. Text length: 10.000 characters. Submission deadline: April 29, 2019. Mail us under info(at)berlinergazette.de
An introductory essay describes the ideas of the project and presents the questions to which we wish to invite readers to contribute. You can read the German version on Berliner Gazette (https://bit.ly/2TNAjD6). The English version is made available by our international media partners: Mediapart in France (https://bit.ly/2STl2AH), openDemocracy in England (https://bit.ly/2TS8jyq) and transversal in Austria (https://bit.ly/2AOz0wC). Feel free to re-publish or translate the text (CC-BY-4.0).
*BG Annual Conference*
The MORE WORLD project will culminate in the BG annual conference, which will take place at the Center for Arts and Urbanistics (ZK/U) on Oct. 10-12, 2019. Save the date! To tackle the key issues of the project, the BG will create a three-day program, including lectures, workshops and performances. More than 500 people in total are expected to attend the events. The workshops – arguably the heart of the conference – will bring together activists, researchers and cultural workers from more than 20 countries. The BG will invite key actors from the international scene to form the core of the workshops, and will issue a call for the general public to register. You will learn about it on this site in the spring: more-world.berlinergazette.de
