Your Visions for #rpEUROPE – The Winners!


Violeta Pirnog's lovely vision for #rpEUROPE (@VioletaPirnog)

The other week we were raffling off tickets to re:publica including travel expenses to those who would write us about their vision for a digital Europe. To all participants, thank you so much for your contributions! Please see all #rpEUROPE visions over here. Since we are hosting events in Dublin and Thessaloniki this year, were were raffling off the tickets to participants from Ireland, Greece and Germany. Now we got six lucky winners, yay! Read more on the winners and their propositions below.

Why did we chose digital Europe as topic? This is part of our re:connecting EUROPE project, which aims at networking the digital society and creating spaces for the exchange of ideas. Thanks to the support by the German Federal Foreign Office, we will be gathering experts, media representatives, international organisations and decision-makers at the re:connecting EUROPE Space during re:publica 2017 to discuss the common challenges and solutions facing activists, founders and artists in Europe. On to the visions for #rpEUROPE:
