Welcome to BarCamp Alpbach
The BarCampn Alpbach is envisioned as a forum where participants of the European Forum Alpbach and external participants get together, talk about their own fields of interest and connect them to others.
The overall topic of the BarCamp is the concept of “Transformations” – in all of its facets. Starting off from the general topic “Experience and Values”, it aims at identifying changes in science and society. Politics, economy, law, research and culture are all undergoing more or less transparent transformations. New forms of creativity, participation and self-organization are emerging. Many of these are related to the digital world in which we live. New concepts of democracy, security and knowledge are challenging traditions and long-established institutions.
Here are some of the questions proposed for discussion: How do you experience transformations in your environment? Which concepts underpin these transformations? What collective experiences influence our way of thinking? How are learning processes transforming? In which way are values changing (societal, ethical, moral etc.) Which challenges and dangers are foreseeable? Additional questions, contributions and topics for discussion from all fields of research and practice are explicitly welcome. We invite you to send in (informal) suggestions for sessions. You decide in which way you would like to present: give a talk, start a discussion round, or even raise a question targeted at the other participants.
Participation is free of charge. Drinks and snacks will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there!
