Join us for our #GetUpStandUp seminar in Berlin!
When: August 17, from 10.30 to 16.15

Are online protests effective? Is liking a protest page on Facebook a form of protest or is more action required? What social and political impacts do modern protests have?
We will discuss past and present types of protest, with a special emphasis on the meaning of protest and online protests.
Lunch and coffee breaks will be provided, as will a certificate of attendance at the end of the seminar.
Afterwards, join us on the terrace for some drinks and snacks!
