The Code of Conduct

For 13 years, re:publica stands for diversity in an open society. We aim to focus attention on those people, organisations, and projects which stand up to hate, violence and injustice. This applies locally and of course also online. Because for us it goes without saying that no one should be discriminated on the basis of age, gender, appearance, sexual orientation, physical or mental abilities, skin colour, origin or religion.

Support us and be active in ensuring that re:publica 2019 in Berlin fully reflects this openness in all its variants. Treat others with respect and help create a good atmosphere for open conversation. This includes your comments and posts on blogs, websites, the twittersphere and other social networks as well as the #rp19. 

We subscribe to a reflective, moderate demeanour and interaction with others and hope to be treated the same by you. Please act responsibly on all platforms and practice de-escalation before conflicts arise. Whether online or offline, we do not tolerate any form of hate, defamation, intimidation, threats, patronising comments or behaviour and will respond to any incidents accordingly.

Furthermore, during the re:publica event we will not tolerate verbal hostility, stalking, physical altercations of any kind or people who act out negatively and disrupt sessions and/or stage events. Aggressive photography and recording of participants without their permission is forbidden. The same applies to the carrying of weapons or fireworks. Contribute in making our re:publica 2019 a great and memorable event. Help to make everyone feel safe and do not hesitate to approach us or others if you need help or support. Troublemakers will be reprimanded and we reserve the right to exclude them from events and, in extreme cases, the re:publica area. If someone feels unduly accused or unfairly treated, they should turn to us and we will try to mediate the matter with all involved parties.
