Extinction Rebellion

Extinction Rebellion

Global movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse

Global movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to halt mass extinction and minimise the risk of social collapse

On 31st October 2018, British activists assembled on Parliament Square in London to announce a Declaration of Rebellion against the UK Government. The next few weeks were a whirlwind. Six thousand rebels converged on London to peacefully block five major bridges across the Thames. Trees were planted in the middle of Parliament Square, and hole was dug there to bury a coffin representing our future. Rebels super-glued themselves to the gates of Buckingham Palace as they read a letter to the Queen.

Extinction Rebellion was born.

The call to rebel swiftly became global, with branches popping up the following week in Europe, the US, and soon after the world over. Leaderless and truly global, each new branch makes the movement stronger, bringing in new perspectives, wisdom, expertise, energy and inspiration.

We are working relentlessly, building our movement in preparation for phase three, a global rebellion that will begin on the 7th of October 2019. So come and join us. Rebel for life. For the planet. For our children’s children’s futures. There is so much work to be done.

Surprise weekend trip with strangers and fun challenges

Surprise weekend trip with strangers and fun challenges

Would you like to break out of your comfort zone, meet inspiring people and discover a new city? Last year I met 5 strangers at the airport, flew to Bucharest for a weekend, drank shots with strangers, got a piggyback ride from strangers, ended up giving free hugs to strangers, went on a scavenger hunt… and came back to Berlin with 5 new friends. 100% recommended if you want to break out of your daily routine, meet new people and challenge yourself!

Photo of me with sunglasses, an inflatable banana in the right hand and a free-hugs sign in the left.

We plan epic adventures to surprise destinations where you will have to complete a series of fun challenges that will make you discover the city in a totally unique and fun way! You won't know where you're going until 1 hour before departure. You can either plan your own adventure with friends (from anywhere in Europe) or join a small group of awesome, like-minded travelers (aged 20-35s).

re:publica

re:publica

re:publica Berlin is Europe’s largest internet and digital society conference. More than 19 500 participants from 80 countries came together to discuss current issues of digital society at the three-day festival re:publica 18. re:publica participants represent a cross-section of (digital) society, which include professionals from economics, politics, business, hacker culture, NGOs, media, and marketing, as well as bloggers, activists, artists, and social media experts. Roughly 50 percent of re:publica 18 speakers were women, ranking the event as one of the most inclusive of its kind.  

Active visitor participation makes re:publica a unique event. Anyone can propose topics, ideas, or projects for the program, which creates a diverse set of subjects and exceptional networking opportunities.

Founded in 2007 by Tanja Haeusler, Andreas Gebhard, Markus Beckedahl, and Johnny Hauesler, re:publica GmbH’s shareholders, newthinking communications and Spreeblick Verlag, have been committed to issues of net politics, as well as digital culture and society, for over a decade.

re:publica’s broad range of topics has been drawing an increasing number of sponsors and partners each year. Since 2014, this has included close collaborations with Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg, as well as the international media convention MEDIA CONVENTION Berlin.

re:publica also nurtures close and long-standing partnerships with institutions, ministries, NGOs, corporations, and other organizations. These include corporations like Daimler AG, IBM, Microsoft, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Telekom, Google, Deutsche Bahn AG, Telefonica, and Mozilla, as well as political foundations (the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation, Friedrich-Ebert Foundations, Heinrich-Böll Foundation, Friedrich-Naumann Foundation), media outlets (ARD, ZDF, RBB, WDR), and NGOs (WWF, World Data Lab.)

CreativeMornings

CreativeMornings

In 2008, Tina Roth Eisenberg (Swissmiss) started CreativeMornings out of a desire for an ongoing, accessible event for New York’s creative community. The concept was simple: breakfast and a short talk one Friday morning a month. Every event would be free of charge and open to anyone.

Today, attendees gather in cities around the world to enjoy fresh coffee, friendly people, and an international array of breakfast foods. Volunteer hosts and their team members organize local chapters that not only celebrate a city’s creative talent, but also promote an open space to connect with like-minded individuals. The growing archive of past breakfast talks is humbling. From design legends to hometown heroes, speakers are selected by each chapter based on a global theme.

CreativeMornings remains free thanks to the support of local partners, generous venues, and longterm global partners. Everyone is welcome. Everyone is creative. Just register beforehand to reserve your spot. And if you need a little help convincing your boss to let you attend, we’ve got you covered. Remember to set your alarm, and we’ll see you in the morning!
