We are inviting all participants to bring their expertise, interests and questions into Freedom not Fear 2023 as session proposals. The programme of FNF is created by all participants together on the spot.
Your session could be connected to the following topics, but of course you are not limited to these:
- Tech buzz or game changer: “AI” and how do we deal with it?
- Climate crisis: tech(ies) as problem, solution or what?
- Public and private surveillance: who is watching whom?
All workshops and talks (Fri – Sun) will take place at:
Avenue des Arts 7-8
An important part of Freedom not Fear (FNF) is “advocacy monday”. We want to meet with Members of European Parliament (MEPs) or Commission and other policy makers and talk to them. Feel free to contact MEPs to invite them to Freedom not Fear for presenting their topic, to discuss with us or to arrange meetings with them outside of Freedom not Fear.
There is no pre-set programme at Freedom not Fear – only time-slots to be filled with content. The programme will be made by you, the participants, during the actual event.
