Manifesto for technological sovereignty and digital rights for cities

Short thesis

Berlin & Vienna are going Barcelona

What's Berlin's digital strategy for the next years? How can technology lead to more participation in democratic processes? Where do we need joint initiatives by actors from the economy, civil society and politics, to ensure a sustainable, participatory and efficient digital transformation? Which needs and ressources does civil society offer? And what can we learn from other metropolitan areas around the world, especially Barcelona?

Description

What's Berlin's digital strategy for the next years? How can technology lead to more participation in democratic processes? Where do we need joint initiatives by actors from the economy, civil society and politics?  Which needs and ressources does civil society offer? How can a Smart City Berlin be used for the common good instead of glossy brochures?

And what can we learn from other metropolitan areas around the world? Barcelona, for example, rolled out a Rebel City strategy focusing on the right to city and a sustainable, participatory and efficient digital transformation.
