The seventh edition of the technology festival Border Sessions will be held between the 13th and the 16th of June in various venues in the city centre of The Hague.
Border Sessions is a yearly tech culture festival on a mission to kick-start and fuel challenging
ideas, experiments and endeavours with a strong focus on multidisciplinary projects. We unite
creative and critical minds from around the globe who share the belief that technology should be
a powerful instrument for positive change. We offer a multifaceted platform bringing together a
wide array of participants from the public and private sector. Together with our partner network
and community we examine groundbreaking technologies and work towards solutions for a
better world. Border Sessions does this by organising networking meetings, co-creation labs,
workshops, sessions by 80+ inspiring speakers, a hackathon and the Border Labs Award.
Some examples of the topics we will be working on are: justice innovation, local economies,
autonomous agents for regenerative ecologies, better media, progressive tech, edible insects, VR
for good, tech nature.
