r0g_agency hosts, develops and participates in open culture and critical transformation themed events at home in Berlin and worldwide. Our first major curated_EVENTS, #OSJUBA (Berlin, June 2012), #MMJUBA (Juba, December 2012) and our session at the UNESCO WSIS+10 Review (February 2013) have helped create the framework for our current initiatives on post-conflict development in the Republic of South Sudan.

 

Curated events

r0g_curated_EVENTS seek to further the role of open knowledge led solutions employing FOSS, OERs and Open Data in post-conflict development, crisis mitigation and societal transformation scenarios. These are our key independently curated or collaboratively produced public events.

Key r0g_ conferences, workshops, exhibitions or discussions curated independently, or in collaboration with our partners in conjunction with leading international open culture events.

Feautured events

r0g_featured_EVENTS highlight guest contributions to key international conferences, workshops or specialised seminars which support our research and programme trajectory. These have included our contributions to leading international events such as OKconf (Geneva, September 2013), the Summit for Community Wireless Networks (Berlin, October 2013) and ICT4ag (Kigali, November 2013).
