The first of our core activities of the year is the Digital Kick-Off Day in March, which offers a packed programme of inspiring examples of creative bureaucracy in action. It is a free online event for everyone across the globe with jury-selected sessions from our global Call for Participation – kicking off a new year of public sector innovation and offering an additional platform for forward-thinking ideas and projects prior to the live festival in Berlin.
The next Digital Kick-Off Day will take place on 21 March 2024. Until 15 December we are calling all creative bureaucrats and innovative changemakers to submit their projects and initiatives to become part of the programme. For the first time you can apply in three different categories – Project Showcase, Digital Workshop and Podcast Episode. Find out more on our Call for Participation page and apply now!
Last year’s Digital Kick-Off Day counted almost 2,000 digital participants from 77 countries, with 40 programme sessions and over 100 speakers from 20 countries, as well as over 10,000 votes cast to elect this year’s community voting winners!
