Future of Democracy Event

Das Progressive Zentrum partners with Revision Summit

Innovative summit on democratic values, data and social security, and economic growth

How can technological advancement be shaped in a more socially compatible way? This and many more pressing questions will be addressed at this year’s Revision Summit on 19-20 November in Berlin. Das Progressive Zentrum is a partner of the event.

At this year’s Revision Summit, views on future technologies in the context of societal change will be discussed in order to identify the most pressing questions of today’s and tomorrow’s society. In an increasingly digitized world, how do we shift the focus towards the human being? What are the possibilities of technologies such as Blockchain & AI, which juggle between uncertainties, data, and trust? How can the digital society advance from a profit-centric towards a more purpose-driven economy? These are all questions that are currently of concern to Berlin’s impact-driven technology community.

The summit will focus on:
• democratic values (from the excluded to the engaged citizen);
• data privacy (from the disempowered to the sovereign citizen);
• social security (from a centralized to a decentralized social system);
• economic growth (from profit to purpose).

As a partner of the summit, we are able to offer a limited number of tickets free of charge. To request tickets, please contact Project Manager Alban Genty:
