Energize, Mobilize, Polarize! Heinrich Boll Stiftung conference Berlin

The spread of digital technologies has given new opportunities to activists around the world. At the same time they can also be the cause of new threats to activists and people using digital media for political communication or mobilization. Successful campaigning and political action requires knowledge of digital technologies and social media, as well as skills in communication strategies and creative forms to express a message.

The event will attempt to answer the question: “What are the tools and trends, the opportunities and challenges for activism in 2013?” both on a theoretical and practical level and also both online and offline.
