Live from the Deutsches Museum, Munich – tune in online!

We live in a time full of opportunities. Through Web3, NFTs, and the Metaverse, we can create a better Internet. The combination of biology and technology is saving lives. But at the same time, our planet is on the brink of collapse. How do we get order out of this chaos?

Thinking about the motto for this year's conference, we were struck by how polarized public discourse has become. Too often we end up in "us versus them” situations. But it’s not nature or technology, analog life or digital life, privacy or comfort, profit or impact. We don’t have to choose between the old economy and the new economy.

Let’s not fall back into the same divisive patters again and again. Let’s create and celebrate collaborative solutions for a better future. Therefore, our motto for this year is: Synthese. (Which, by the way, is the German word for Synthesis.)
