Event description

Description

As of September 24, one thing is clear: the German Bundestag will look different. While Angela Merkel might get another term as Chancellor, current polls indicate that the parliament will grow from four represented political parties to five, if not six.

But what does that mean for Germany’s digital agenda?

Geraldine de Bastion (Board, Digitale Gesellschaft), Markus Beckedahl (Editor in Chief, netzpolitik.org), Dr. Sven Herpig (tbc, Project Director Transatlantic Cyber Forum, Stiftung Neue Verantwortung) and Cathleen Berger (Lead, Engagement Global Internet Fora, Mozilla) will look at the election results as well as developments of the last few years to map out what we have to prepare for with a view to net politics, digital rights, and broader trends in tech policy.

What role did “Fake News” and election manipulation play? Domestically, what new legislative initiatives should we expect? Are there issues the German government might take a lead on internationally? And most importantly, how can we, as citizens, as internet users, as innovators and activists, make sure that this new digital agenda is moving in a positive direction?

These are just a few of the questions, we will address that night. We don’t promise any solutions, but an open and engaging conversation to help us all get ready for what’s to come for Germany’s digital agenda.

Join us on September 26 at the Mozilla Berlin office. Doors open at 6.30pm. Fireside Chat kicks off at 7pm. To help us keep track of numbers please register here or email cathleen@mozilla.com.
