Become a speaker
We’re inviting everybody who works in the intersection of activism, political accountability and new technologies in Southeast Europe, to submit a proposal for a short (up to 15 min) presentation about their work in the field. If you’re an activist developing a project related to the use of new technologies in fields of government accountability monitoring and/or open data, or if you want to share a story about a success of technology-related project(s) of civil society, or about the use of new technologies for advocacy or monitoring different branches of government — we would love to have you on the stage and get to know more about your experiences. You can learn on how to become a speaker from the attachment.
Become a participant
Are you involved in political accountability projects and want to learn more about the usage of new technologies in this field? Or maybe you are a developer who wants to get involved with some civil society projects around open government? Or somebody who connects those two worlds and wants to meet similar people and learn more about what is happening around the world, in particular in Southeast Europe? We have a bunch of fellowships for covering the costs of travel and accommodation for participants from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia.
