After the successful first Bits & Bäume Conference in 2018, the topics of digitalization and sustainability are more present in our society today than ever before. We are facing major societal and global challenges for a just and sustainable shaping of our (surrounding) world. Therefore, we would like to broaden and consolidate the networking of environmental and justice activists, technology experts and human rights activists with the Bits & Bäume 2022 conference from October 1st to 2nd, 2022. A kick-off event will be held on the evening of September 30th. This also includes networking our communities with representatives of social-ecological small digital businesses and founders as well as politicians in order to find concrete solutions for the pressing issues of our time. We want to discuss major political strategies and governance proposals, but also learn from each other through best practice examples how we can realise climate and environmental protection, social justice, democracy and fundamental rights in the digital age.

Together we want to discuss on panels, in workshops and open spaces:  

  • How should digitalisation be shaped in a way that it contributes to a sustainable and democratic transformation of our society?
  • What does a globally, economically, socially and ecologically just future look like in the digitalised world?
  • What can the tech community (bits) and the justice and environmental movement (bäume) learn from each other? And how can those communities get in touch with social-ecological pioneer companies, science and politics?
  • How can we become politically active together?

We are currently putting together an exciting programme from hundreds of submissions - more information about speakers and workshops will follow soon!

Would you like to be part of the conference and help the community grow? To make the conference possible we need many helping hands. In return for supporting us, we not only offer a look behind the scenes of Bits & Bäume, but also free entry on all three days, food and lots of fun obviously! Just sign up for one (or more) shift(s) in our Engelsystem: We are looking forward to meeting you!

Pitch and Thrive for Sustainability

Challenge your start-up

“Shark tank” in green aka “Die Höhle der Löwen” though sustainable and without a camera. The future belongs to sustainable business models. As part of the conference ideas are presented daily to a selected jury and the community. There will be valuable feedback and questions about the sustainability of the undertaking and also about the potential profitability of the business case. An evaluation will be made by selected jurors and the audience.

Naturally on top of all mentioned above there will be a diversified cultural program. Music, readings and theatre. What more do you need? We are looking forward to a glorious opening event with "vollehalle" and an unforgettable closing party on Sunday evening.

Our Demands

The joint demands of the 13 member organisations for the Bits & Bäume Conference 2022 will soon be available here.

At the 2018 conference, the ten civil society member organisations from tech, environment and development sectors agreed on eleven demands. These demands constitute a basis on how digitalisation can be designed in a manner that serves the common good as well as peace, takes data protection seriously and promotes social and ecological goals alike. You can find the demands of Bits & Bäume 2018 here.
