We are excited to announce Unlock 2018 will take place on 24-25 May 2018 in Prague.
Unlock is the Prague Civil Society Centre’s annual civic innovation platform that explores how technology and innovation are empowering civil society in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
It is a unique event that brings together leaders and innovators from the worlds of tech, media, business and activism for two days in Prague. Infusing some of their tips, tricks and skills into the work of activists in the region is needed now more than ever before. As civil society in Eastern Europe and Central Asia comes under ever more pressure, there is a need for activists and NGOs to become more flexible, dynamic and tech savvy in order to survive.
Unlock 2017 highlights
Unlock hopes to fast-track this process by demonstrating the plethora of opportunities available to activists to get their message across and affect change. Last year’s topics included how gamification can be used to bring sensitive issues to the mainstream, workshops on how NGOs can build their audiences, how big data can be the key to successful public investigations and how alliances can be formed between business and activism.
A positive event in a region used to negative stories, Unlock does not lecture but engages and is led by experts from the region who face the same challenges and conditions as the participants.
