From mapping to connecting to collaborating 

We are seeking to build digital public spaces that are in line with our common values: we want them to be open, democratic, and sustainable. Many initiatives exist that work on alternatives that can be part of this ecosystem of change. In this track we will get both an overview of what organisations and projects are already out there, get a sense of how they can work together, and build new connections between initiatives and networks that operate in this ecosystem. Central to this track is a map that we are working on and build on during the sessions in this track. We invite participants to join us and add to this map as well as to find new potential collaborations, so that together we can make these digital public spaces a reality. Ian Forrester, BBC R&D, will moderate the sessions in this track and invite you to join us on the shared ‘map of change’. 

#1 : Mapping the ecosystem

How do we foster collaboration towards developing digital public spaces that are rooted in human rights and public values? Many initiatives exist and have been referenced, but how do these together become more than the sum of their parts? Maps have been created in the past that brought some alternatives together. In this session we’ll hear from them about what they’ve done and how they can inspire us to find fellow travelers towards creating lasting change.

Show and tell to inspire, followed by an in-depth panel discussion.
