After we skipped the annual conference in 2020 and had an online edition during 2021, the POINT conference is coming home in an offline form. The conference will be held on 11th and 12th November this year, in Dom mladih Sarajevo.
POINT Conference (Political Accountability and New Technologies) is the largest conference of this type in the Southeastern Europe (SEE) region and seeks to be a platform for civil society that encourages the use of new technologies.
Since its first edition in 2011, the Point Conference has become a unique meeting place for civic activists and civil society representatives from SEE, but also from all over the world, as well as a platform for exchanging ideas and innovative solutions to promote a responsible and open society.
Following the online edition of the conference called “Point Talks”, in which we discussed a number of different topics, we decided to hold the conference offline in a slightly modified format.
Participation at the POINT Conference offers the possibility of learning about initiatives that are involved in political accountability projects, open data in democracy, technology tools for transparency and accountability, current events and the impact of technology.
POINT is a great place for networking and potential cooperation, and it offers peer-to-peer learning during the workshops. After we skipped the annual conference in 2020 and had an online edition during 2021, the POINT conference is coming home in an offline form.
