Hi Unlike Us folks!

climate change, migration and digitalization: these are the greatest
challenges in the current phase of globalization. How can we meet them?
In its 20th year, the Berliner Gazette, under the motto MORE WORLD, is
highlighting communal practices that confront these planetary
challenges. To this end, a special section in our Internet newspaper
berlinergazette.de will be open for contributions from all over the
world. Moreover, we will organize a series of events. The MORE WORLD
project will culminate in the BG annual conference, which will take
place at the Center for Arts and Urbanistics (ZK/U) on October 10-12, 2019.

Learn more about it on the project’s website
(https://more-world.berlinergazette.de) or continue reading further below.

*Introductory Essay*
The BG’s 20th anniversary project MORE WORLD invites you to explore
together with us communal tools for planetary challenges. An
introductory essay* describes the ideas of the project and presents the
questions to which we wish to invite readers to contribute. You can read
the German version on Berliner Gazette (https://bit.ly/2TNAjD6). The
English version is made available by our international media partners:
Mediapart in France (https://bit.ly/2STl2AH), openDemocracy in England
(https://bit.ly/2TS8jyq) and transversal in Austria
(https://bit.ly/2AOz0wC). Feel free to re-publish or translate the text

*Call for Contributions*
We sense a great urgency now to make all sorts of case studies and small
and large examples accessible to ordinary people. To this end, we have
created a special section in our Internet newspaper
https://berlinergazette.de. This is an open forum to which writers,
researchers, activists, artists, journalists and all kinds of other
producers of (subjugated) knowledge are invited to contribute reports,
essays, interviews, etc. Text length: 10.000 characters. Submission
deadline: April 29, 2019. Mail us under info(at)berlinergazette.de

*Kick-off Events*
The Berliner Gazette will launch the MORE WORLD project with two events
at the beginning of 2019. On January 24th at 7 p.m. a lecture by
internationally influential sociologist and writer Avery F. Gordon at
the commons project space Supermarkt, Mehringplatz 9, 10969 Berlin. More
info here (https://bit.ly/2CoSaZQ). On February 3rd at 1 p.m. a
transmediale-panel with the humanitarian policy consultant Abiol Lual
Deng, the performance artist Alexander Karschnia and the journalist
Magdalena Taube at the House of World Cultures/Café Global,
John-Foster-Dulles-Allee 10, 10557 Berlin. More info here

*BG Annual Conference*
The MORE WORLD project will culminate in the BG annual conference, which
will take place at the Center for Arts and Urbanistics (ZK/U) on Oct.
10-12, 2019. Save the date! To tackle the key issues of the project, the
BG will create a three-day program, including lectures, workshops and
performances. More than 500 people in total are expected to attend the
events. The workshops – arguably the heart of the conference – will
bring together activists, researchers and cultural workers from more
than 20 countries. The BG will invite key actors from the international
scene to form the core of the workshops, and will issue a call for the
general public to register. You will learn about it on this site in the
spring: https://more-world.berlinergazette.de
