On Sunday Elevate presents several exciting initiatives promoting new forms of democracy. Other events focus on internet policies, technologies and media. We will show Friedrich Moser´s much acclaimed documentary The Brussels Business, which takes us on a journey into the European Union´s corridors of power. The thrilling film tries to answer a question millions of Europeans ask themselves: Who runs the Union?

What´s going on in Brussels when it comes to internet policies und which strategies do progressive special interest groups and NGOs use to positively influence decision making and legislation processes? This is the central question of the next panel. Sunday´s last event deals with “hate on the internet”: Why is online communication escalating? And how can extremism, hoaxes, lies and cyber-mobbing be confronted?
