European Barcamp in Moscow

Can we change this world? Drive social change in Russia, Belarus, Armenia? Impossible? No! It is possible. And: Yes, we can.

And we will also announce the first “Changing the World Award” for the best projects of the 24h-hackathon, held during the event.

What is a BarCamp?

The European Barcamp, held in Kyiv and Moscow, is unlike any classical conference you have ever attended. User-generated, fast and fun, it offers a unique opportunity for participants from the creative community, civil society, politics, and the tech and starts up the scene to come together, learn from each other, start new projects and co-create. Leading experts from tech and politics, filmmaking and storytelling will stand ready to provide inputs and feedback and there is ample room for personal reflection. But in the end, it is YOUR conference, a unique “learning and doing experience” driven by participants’ desire to share and learn in an open environment.
