The Future Can Be Better Than We Think.

A Tribal Meeting, in person and online

Nov. 5-7 and 12-14, 2021

This year's event theme has emerged in a crowd sourcing process as The Future Can Be Better Than We Think. We will offer workshops, keynotes and other activities according to our four cluster themes:

  • The Future of Activism
  • Transformation & Change
  • Connecting Again
  • Global Responsibility

And here is a short update on the most relevant information for you:

Come from abundance! We have received more than 60 intriguing proposals and are now going through each and everyone of those with reasonable care. At a later stage, we will involve those who want to attend in the fine-tuning of the program.

This year is more than ever! We have decided to host not one but two events: an in-person event on site in Berlin (November 5-7, 2021) and an online event (see below). We expect that a physical meeting will be possible, by observing adequate precautionary measures like a limited number of participants and hygiene measures If still required, we'll have Covid-19 testing stations. Expect the usual mix of learning and networking opportunities and of course, playing and partying!

Hybrid is what has emerged! We will stream part of the in-presence BCD so if you decided not to travel to Berlin, you can still enjoy part of the program. Moreover we will offer an online BCD21 (November 12-14, 2021), leading up Toronto Change Days 2021.

Next steps! You will be able to preregister by June 2021. The, you can choose which parts of the program you want to attend. So mark the date - you do not want to miss this!
