ECOPOLIS 2017: Digital Together – For a Just Society

ICT and Digital Agenda
Date: Sunday, 08 October 2017 11:00 - 18:00

Venue: Kaaitheater  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

The main theme of Ecopolis 2017 is the impact of the digital era on relationships between people, between people and organisations as well as between people and politics. In spite of the insecurity of the modern world, the rapid speed of advancing technologies will not slow down or go away. On the contrary, our reliance on these technologies will only increase in our daily lives. Therefore, it will be crucial to empower people to work together, share ideas, and connect with politicians in new ways.

What is Ecopolis?

Ecopolis is a full day event incorporating several key note speeches, high-level panel discussions and round table workshops, which will converge around the possibilities of digital technologies to unite people in different ways. The panels, among others, will for instance be entitled ‘Tools for democracy’, and ‘Individual autonomy and digital commons’. A core question will be how we can build political communities in the digital era and what policies can be developed on the EU level to facilitate this goal?

The aim of Ecopolis is to set up a fruitful dialogue between different sectors of society on the socio-ecological challenges, to provide a platform for exchange of innovative ideas and perspectives. The Green European Foundation will contribute to the European dimension of this event and interpretation in English, French, and Dutch will guarantee broad accessibility to the event.
