Frequently asked questions

How do I get an invitation/ticket to this workshop?

This event is bringing together people who are currently directly involved in building, researching, regulating, monetising and or providing meaningful input into the wider debate around the technologies in question. We want to ensure that every participant leaves the venue having presented and discussed their work with others who can provide meaningful input or connect them with opportunities to further their professional and or personal development. If this appeals to you, then we would love to have you join us. Just create an edgeryders account and introduce yourself to the community here.

How is this event being organised?

This event, and the festival it is part of, is coordinated on the edgeryders platform (where you are now) and co-curated through a series of community video calls. We have allocated a collaboratively managed budget for the festival and operate on a solidarity basis. Participants who need some financial support to organise or be able to participate in the festival are eligible provided they contribute towards making it a meaningful and generative experience for all - in the run up to, during and/or after the event. If you would like to join us but are unsure as to how to contribute, don’t worry. Create an edgeryders account, then tell us a bit about yourself here and we will guide you along from there.

**Here the text needs to be individualised for your event!!!**


( add @your edgeryder name here )

am coordinating this event,

with @potential collaborator X (ex. venue and communication support), and @potential collaborator Y (ex. Moderation and session preparation). Some people have been specially invited as guests because the work they are doing right now and their expertise will help ensure that the discussion is based on case studies, credible data and hands on experience.

How is this all financed?

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 822682.

Does getting involved mean I endorse the funders views or actions?

No. What you are doing is contributing to an open consultation on the topic of how to build a next generation of internet infrastructure, technologies, business models etc that promotes the wellbeing of humans and the natural environment. The consultation methodology is designed in such a way as to allow for diversity of views, premises, disciplines, themes and contexts. We employ open notebook science principles and the results will be presented in the form of a research report accessible to everyone after the event. You can follow the process, review the methodology and open source tech we are using and engage directly with the research and coordination team here: https://edgeryders.eu/c/ioh/workspace

Sorry guys, I am unavailable:-/

Hi Natalia,
I had the meeting with the event organizers. I have defined what are the roles. I have some ideas on how to make people post their ideas.

Tomorrow, I will put the event description here.

Great, looking forward to reading it. If you need a call, let me know, I won’t be able to come and help with documenting as I am doing work in Slovenia at that time, but I can help you prepare everything remotely. Maybe it would be nice to have Jirka come over, or Kuba, or both, if you will need some help with anything?
Let me know, ping me when the event description is ready

Friday (likely 7PM till 9PM): there will be a panel discussion about social housing. Obstacles for disadvantaged people, sky-rocketing prices, gentrification, clearing of city apartments).

Very interesting people are there to speak: Martin Freund - author of Housing First and Rapid Rehousing
then we’re talking to Jan Cizinsky and Anna Sbatova (ombutsman).

Saturday and Sunday, there will be the hackathon itself where the participants will work out projects to address the very bad situation with housing in Bnro.

Shouldn’t be this conversation moved better to #workspace untill we will have final publishable proposition? :slight_smile: Have a nice weekend!

It’s ok, it can be here :slight_smile:
