Dear all,

The Open State Foundation would like to invite you GCCS-Unplugged 
<http://hetnieuwestemmen.us4.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=03355fd4f1a7935cae63b21aa&id=4d9599aa27&e=e50e65cb1f>Â on 
the 17th of April in The Hague. GCCS-Unplugged is the “unconference” 
edition of Diplohack, where you set the agenda, decide the subject and 
work it out with others.Â

GCCS-Unplugged is an unconference run by Open State Foundation in 
cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and a lot of others, 
including WebWeWant, FreePressUnlimited, Hague Global Institute for 
Justice, Bits of Freedom. We welcome both transparency (open data) and 
online freedom and privacy communities, both developers and others and 
policymakers, journalists, startups and participants of the Global 
Conference on CyberSpace. The unconference is within 2 minutes walk from 
the main governmental conference hall (WorldForum) in the Hague. It is 
held at the Worldhotel Bel Air in The Hague.

It’s an unconference where participants make the agenda, join the 
conversations and decide what topics to be discussed. It will be the 
place where those who are concerned about transparency and online 
freedoms come together and actually make themselves heard and join the 
conversation with diplomats and other participants of the GCCS. We will 
help participants build the agenda, enable participation and to get the 
most from the day.

You can register and suggest a session even before you start, here 
! But you can also take your time and suggest sessions and topics to 
discuss on the day of the event itself, it is completely flexible. 
Participation is limited to around 200 people at any one time – first 
come, first served. To find out about topics that have already been 
suggested see here:Â http://www.gccs-unplugged.net/?page_id=144

GCCS Unplugged is an official side-event to the Global Conference on 
CyberSpace on 16-17 April at walking distance to our open event, 
allowing participants of the GCCS to mingle with NGO’s, civic tech 
developers, students, businesses, academics and civil society.

The day will start with a plenary part, in which we will set the agenda 
together and get to know each other. Then there will be various sessions 
broken into seven blocks. Parallel to the session, there will be four 
diplohack sessions. These diplohack sessions are our hackerspace where 
new approaches to online freedom and transparency will be made. When 
attending to a session, it is not necessary to stay until the end, you 
can move around and visit other sessions. Of course you will be 
enjoying lunch with us and, after the plenary closing, we invite you to 
have a drink and a chat with everyone.

Please let us know if you will be attending by registering on this 
website. We hope to see you then!Â

*WHEN: 17 April from 9am to 7pm*
