Torek, 16. aprila ob 18.30 »Odprta koda«
Zakaj v državni upravi še ne uporabljamo odprtih formatov? Zakaj podatkov ne naredimo dostopnih državljanom v računalniško berljivi obliki? Zakaj še kar naprej plačujemo licenčnine Microsoftu če bi lahko uporabljali Libre Office in podobne rešitve?
Govorci: Andrej Vernekar, Lugos, Rok Andree, Piratske stranke, Gašper Žejn, Opendata.si; Martin Srebotnja, LibreOffice. Razpravo bo vodil Filip Dobranić
Sreda, 17. aprila ob 18.30 »Privatizacija interneta«
Poteze, ki jih zadnje čase vlečeta Google in Facebook internet kot odprto polje vse bolj pretvarjata v mesto zagrajenih vrtičkov, kjer se morajo uporabniki in razvijalci prilagajati njunim pravilom igre. Kam to vodi? Ali nas čaka internet dveh (ali več) "operacijskih sistemov" ali pa ostaja upanje za odprt internet. Kaj nam je storiti?
Govorci: Simon Belak, Hekovnik; Boštjan Špetič, Zemanta, vabljeni še Tomaž Pernovšek, Peter Sterle, Vasja Butina (kot vzpostavitelj WiFree Ljubljana). Razpravo bo vodil Filip Dobranić

Okrogla miza bo spregovorila o različnih iniciativah nastalih v slovenskih protestih (Protestival, VLV, Danes je nov dan, Gibanje za neposredno demokracijo, Gibanje za osvoboditev kluba K4, ...) in njihovi uporabi interneta. Kaj točno z njim počnejo, kako ga uporabljajo, a imajo samo Facebook page, kako komunicirajo z vstajniki, kako si predstavljajo organizacijo protestov brez teh orodij...
Govorci: Samo Penič, Odbor.si; Jang Man, Mreža za neposredno demokracijo; Žiga Vrtačič, Danes je nov dan; Uršula Lipovec Čebron, Profestival. Razpravo bo vodil Filip Dobranić.

The project brings together citizens active in youth and Internet non–governmental organizations from different European countries to discuss authorship rights, piracy and privacy on Internet, efectivness and ethics of the movement Anonymous; to analyse the involvement of civil society in the decision making processes about ACTA at national and European level, to research and learn how to influence national and European parliament on the policies and legislation.
We want to foster action, debate and reflection on European citizenship and democracy through analyzing ACTA and related issues. Encouragement of interaction between citizens and civil society organisations from all participating countries and discussions, exchanging views and presenting citizens opinion and project results with relevant decision makers at local, national and EU level, will be the key principles of the project.
The project is ambitious and it wants to empower citizens to play a full role in the democratic life of EU. To achieve the above listed goals we will organise two international events (each with more than 120 participants from 7 countries and 14 partner organisations), on in November in Kranjska gora/Ljubljana and the other in March in Maribor; minimum of 10 public debates in different environments and countries; a special multilingual web page and other internet communication tools; a manual with the presentations and papers about ACTA and a DVD with video material.
The project activities at one hand focus on empowerement of participants to be able to exercise the European citizenship and become active citizens in their environment by giving them knowledge, information and skills how to organise, implement, participate at different types of public discussions and other Internet actions and on the other hand will equip them with knowledge and understanding of citizen participatory strategies, communication with decision makers, importance, controversia, dilemmas of ACTA related issues and the necessity of finding the solution which can satisfy citizens, governments and corporations.
Project is supported by European Union, Europe for citizens program, Action 2 – Active Civil Society in Europe, Measure 3 – Support for projects initiated by civil society organizations. Leading partner is Za in proti, zavod za kulturo dialoga

Studio 12 is an independent non-governmental Internet and TV media, aiming to enrich Slovene and European (online) media space with fresh optimism, constructiveness and active citizenship promotion. Rather than focusing on the informative part of media (following current events) it fills the gap of media non-coverage: positive reporting and encouragement – therefore challenging the established media paradigm of ‘’Bad news is good news.’’By covering success stories and exploring various possible impacts of active citizens, informal groups or NGOs in the social realm, Studio 12 is encouraging active citizenship, supporting other NGOs in their work and increasing optimism in public. If media should be a reflection of the society and mainstream media in general only portraits one side of the story (more and more sensationalistic), there is a need for the reflection of the other side of the story (constructive, positive and encouraging). Studio 12 produces educational video content that supports an individual to develop his or her competences, to take on an active role as a citizen, to face the social challenges with willpower and optimism, to protect the environment, fight for human rights, lead a healthy lifestyle and establish constructive interpersonal relations. Through videos, shows and live events it is emphasizing the strength of an individual and the possibilities of citizens to reach out for common goals in order to achieve better quality of life.In the last three years Studio 12 produced more than a thousand videos, TV shows and documentaries. Some of them have been broadcasted by other TV stations, for example the first program of the national TV. Some very prominent figures from the social life have given interviews: the President of Slovenia dr. Danilo Turk, the President of the European parliament dr. Hans-Gert Poettering, the European Commissioner for the environment dr. Janez Potočnik, and many ministers, parliamentarians, NGO's representatives, etc.As in other press-media projects, the team of Studio 12 consists of various profiles. Besides the experienced publicists and journalists other profiles will participate at the project: an expert of communications, sociologist, engineer of multimedia, graphics, composers etc.Studio 12 makes the videos, interviews and documentaries at different locations as well as in his own studio; with the professional recording equipment and according to the professional standards of TV production.
