dare to shape your future!
To dare something, that's what it's all about! At the convention, young people discussed how they imagine their future – and what they have to dare to make this future happen.
What happened at dareCon?
How do you imagine your future? That was the central question during dareCon! Together with the organisations “Jugend hackt”, "IMAGINARY - open mathematics", "Glocal Films", the artists Beldan Sezen and Susanne Heincke students worked on their future projects in various digital workshops and gave their generation a voice. They advanced their visual storytelling skills or practiced coding future spaces in VR. Others experimented with AI and discussed opportunities and risks of this new technology. The participating students took an active part in the programme by sharing their engagement in digital Ted Talks, panel discussions or social media stories.
On Saturday evening participants were able to stream a live concert of the band Systemabsturz from Humboldthain Club in Berlin. Systemabsturz is an electro-pop duo from Berlin. Their songs are about the fact that we all (have to) reveal more and more private information on social media, but also in public spaces. Their beats are somewhere between pop and techno - the declared goal of every concert is to have sore muscles from dancing the next day.
The main language was English but all the participants took the opportunity to practice their German both with each other and with the students from Germany.
