The Digital Age – are protests still protests or has something changed?

#GetUpStandUp Seminar in Berlin
Berlin : 17/08/2019

Join us for our #GetUpStandUp seminar in Berlin!

When: August 17, from 10.30 to 16.15

Where: Kiefholzstraße 2, Berlin 

Are online protests effective? Is liking a protest page on Facebook a form of protest or is more action required? What social and political impacts do modern protests have?

We will discuss past and present types of protest, with a special emphasis on the meaning of protest and online protests.

Lunch and coffee breaks will be provided, as will a certificate of attendance at the end of the seminar. 

Afterwards, join us on the terrace for some drinks and snacks!

Interested? Then write to until August 16.
