A Social Contract for the Digital Age

Auditorium des ersten Netzpolitischen Kongresses der Grünen Bundestagsfraktion (2010)

Since our last congress on Internet politics two years ago much has happened. Internet politics is no longer a side issue. Today it affects sociopolitical decisions across the board. Politics made with, for and via the internet has become a core factor in our modern information society.
Today we are confident in saying that as the parliamentary group of Alliance 90/The Greens in the German Bundestag we have successfully influenced numerous discussions on internet policy and thus continued to develop our own positions. But there is still progress to be made. How can we help our society as a whole to be able to take the chances the internet offers? How can internet politics help us to participate in shaping our society? What are the government’s responsibilities in the digital age?
These are only a few of the questions that will be asked and discussed during our congress. We are looking forward to meet you in Berlin. Please do not forget to register for the congress online!
