Open Source Festival Congress 2019 – Komm raus. Denken!


Author: Slanted editors

After a successful premiere last year, the Open Source Festival Congress will take place on July 12th, 2019 under the motto “Come out. Think!” into the second round! The OSF Congress takes place during the Open Source Festivals, which this year for the 15th time offers a forum for pop music formats and creativity at the Horse Race Track Düsseldorf.

The main idea of the OSF Congress in 2019: How is one actually creative—in very different areas, industries and professions and which questions do we have to ask each other in order to shape a future worth living together? With international keynotes, investigative talks and cross-sector panels, the festival grounds will once again be used to create an extraordinary open-air projection surface for new ideas. Inspiration and input from the most innovative thinkers, leaders and doers of our time and the context of the global issues that move us today and tomorrow.

The speakers are available for touching and not as pure frontal sound. Every format gets its appropriate location, whether it’s a main stage with the greenest racecourse in the background, a cozy sofa for two to talk to each other or a discussion chair circle in an overseas container. The main thing is open air and lots of fresh air and swallow chirping to stimulate your thoughts.

At the OSF Congress 2019 these five topics in particular will be up for discussion: Communities, New Work, Digital Transformation, Sustainability and Urban Development. But as usual, there will be creative input from all imaginable areas and visitors can look forward to a colorful mix of lectures.
