Thank you to all who spoke, attended, and watched online for making our inaugural event such a success!
Personal Democracy Forum Poland-Central Eastern Europe (PDF PL-CEE) explored the interaction between open Internet and open democracy. It was organised by Personal Democracy Media in cooperation with Fundacja ePaństwo (ePF), recipient of the European Public Sector Information Platform (ePSIplatform) award 2011 for the outstanding parliamentary monitoring portal Sejmometr.pl.
PDF PL-CEE highlighted key players and initiatives in Poland and surrounding countries, as well as perspectives from others outside the region engaged in transparency, technology, and civic activism. There were 300 participants from Poland and from other Central and Eastern European countries including the Balkans.
The main event took place on Friday, February 1, 2013 at Kino Praha and was followed by an unconference on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 9.30am-3pm at Centre Zielna. The unconference gave attendees of PDF a chance to create their own agendas, share experience, as well as information tools and applications that can impact politics at the local and national level.
