Event description
Think Twice is an interdisciplinary conference with the aim to bridge the worlds of pirate parties, academics and NGOs.

About this Event

Think Twice is an international conference organized by Pirate Parties International, Pirate Party of Czechia, Foundation 42 and MEP Markéta Gregorová of parliamentary group Greens/ EFA.

The conference targets not just the scientific community itself but seeks to integrate the general public. It aims to form a bridge between academic work, the world of activism, online and in the streets, and politics. By doing this, Think Twice hopes to contribute to a world where policy is more driven by science and hard facts than by the often irrational whims of public opinion that are easy to manipulate by populists. Establishing a more open and direct democracy depends heavily on building a citizenship that is well informed and well educated.

Think Twice focuses on a broad range of topics including: copyrights, patents, citizen journalism, policy reform, education, security, data protection, surveillance, basic income, emigration, voting rights, non-proliferation, dual use technology, encryption, transparency, net neutrality, open data, e-government, crowd-sourcing, big data, artificial intelligence, globalization, social networks, hacktivism, activism, surveillance, digital activism, etc…

This conference is organized by a coalition of NGOs including Pirate Parties International, an umbrella organisation for Pirate Parties world wide, but this conference works completely independent and has no political agenda. The aim of the conference is to forge links between the worlds of the Academia, Politics and NGOs, to foster a mutual exchange of ideas and experiences that are worth sharing.
