The 4th Think Twice Conference (TT4) will be held on October ??? 2019 in Prague, Czech Republic. The event will bring together academics, professionals, nonprofit and governmental organizations, as well as social activists to discuss Online Challenges to Democracy. Speakers are requested who will contribute to the debate about online challenges to democracy from four different perspectives: 1) government, 2) non-profit, 3) business or 4) activism. We will assess positive and negative consequences of online environment collaboration and propose policy solutions. Prior Think Twice conferences were held in Frankfurt, Istanbul and Jerusalem. The event is entirely non-profit and sponsored by the Pirate Parties International and the Czech Pirate Party. Participation is open to the public, and speakers will include leaders from a variety of organizations who seek to debate policies that target online challenges to democracy. The preferred language of the speeches is English. Below you will find a discussion of the themes for the conference and information about applying. Any inquiries can be sent to board@pp-international.net


Guests who cannot travel to Prague for the event are invited to participate and/or present online. Speakers are asked to either present in a panel discussion (“Online Challenges to Democracy”), organize a workshop, present a poster or graphical information, or speak at the lecture hall. Critical discussions should be presented on one or more of the following subfields: online democracy, the political challenges of governing a free internet, regulations and deregulations of online environments, Big Brother internet, Government spying, Fake news, Fake social media, Preserving freedom of expression online, Democracy interference, Media credibility evaluations and rating systems, Grassroots movements and activism, Political populisms, Risks online globalization, Local and global volunteer networks, or Promoting internet rights through multinational or supranational organizations.


A number of well-known academics, politicians, business representatives, non-profit leaders, and activists will be invited to speak. However, the call for speakers is competitive and open to the public.


Applications to speak should be made by filling out the following short form <ADD LINK> by July 1, 2019.

keithgoldstein: They are in NY right now. If you have any messages to confer with them on the event please do, we should definitely make this a blog post on our website.
MichalGill: Got tasked today again by the PPCZ Board by presenting their following statement. You can find the link to the board's decisions here (second decision of the Feb 4th meeting): https://forum.pirati.cz/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=35129




The full PPCZ's Board statement in Czech:

Republikové predsednictvo

schvaluje zámer na úhradu dopravy z rozpoctu ZO na 57. zasedání Komise pro sociální rozvoj. OSN, a to v maximální výši 12 000 Kc

žádá ZO, aby pri schvalování zámeru prihlížel k celostátne schválené strategii

neschvaluje úhradu ubytování

požaduje report z konference + výstupy medializovatelné na celostátní úrovni

pripomíná, že soucástí nároku na proplacení je vyhotovení reportu z cesty vcetnc fotografie

Návrh byl prijat.

Pro: Ivan Bartoš, Olga Richterová, Radek Holomcík, Mikuláš Peksa


RP prijímá usnesení, s timito výhradami:

1. z pohledu Ceské pirátské strany by tento náklad a úcast na konferenci skrze PPI melo nést PPI

2. bere v potaz, že došlo k nedorozumení, kdy došlo k nákupu letenek dríve než ke schválení zámeru




Google Translate translation in full (fixed a bit):

Republic Board

approves the plan to reimburse transport from the budget of the ZO (Foreign Dept.) at the 57th session of the Commission for Social Development. UN, up to a maximum of CZK 12,000

asks the ZO to take into account a nationally approved strategy when approving plans

does not approve payment of accommodation

requests a conference report + outputs to be publicized at national level

recalls that part of the claim for reimbursement is a copy of a trip report including a photograph

Proposal accepted.

For: Ivan Bartos, Olga Richterova, Radek Holomcik, Mikuláš Peksa


The RP (board) adopts a resolution with the following reservations:

1. From the point of view of the Czech Pirate Party, this cost and conference participation on behalf of PPI should be borne by the PPI

2. Notes that there has been a misunderstanding of the purchase of tickets prior to the approval of the project

MichalGill: That's it. If Ray and Bailey will be talking with Ladislav, please, clear things up. Thank you.

TECH ISSUES 2.4.3 Functioning of the mailing lists (MO-5 2016 GA) Keith will send an email. Anyone who cannot send an email should follow his instructions.

Admin access to our website to other board members so they can add content. Mike, Ladislav, Etienne contact Raymond on his email, because he is an admin and can add you. Discovered some issues with GoDaddy. These issues were fixed. If there are any further issues, please send Bastian an email.

Online location of board meetings Here in Discord? Etienne has a volunteer who would set up a server for us. Zoom works better for GA. We need to reduce the number of tools we use. Security is an issue with Discord, but there is no need for security for our meetings which are open and transparent.

Some PPs have a discord sever like PPFR : PPUK, PPFI...
Proposal that for now we have our meetings on the PPFR server.
We will discuss over a few months, and in the future we will present an actual agenda item.

FINANCIAL ISSUES Cashier

Guillaume discussed having a meeting with the cashiers and the treasurer.
Treasurer discussed getting access to reports, but missing information and needing an update.
Guillaume will check the account and send Mike a report.

ECOSOC 2.8.1 Request for Inputs for Older People Paper, 4 topics, 800 words each.

We submitted the report.

2.8.2 Annual Membership Passes for UNHQ - New York

We need to contact Geneva. Keith will send them a mail through our CSOnet mail.
We don't have any annual passes yet, but we do have temporary passes
Keith will send the relevant documents into one email. Please be aware that you will need to print everything out and bring it with you.

Discussion of financial problem relating to Ladislav's travel. We wanted to reach out to acknowledge there must have been a misunderstanding and PPI is not requesting funds.


STATUTES REVISION Report of the Standing Committee for Statues Revision (SC-SR) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FjomZjv0klLmI50z8O4IgTM8n6Nux5wGpx9r3ea6M_I/edit?usp=sharing

We organized the first meeting, and we will change the way we proceed. Etienne asked several members to give their opinions. He got feedback that helped him to learn that the critiques that are made are common. The solution is to work more asynchronously, spread out the work during the year...
Can Etienne start rewriting the statutes with an open framework?


CONFERENCES

2.9.1 PCS

Is someone speaking on behalf of PPI?
Perhaps we could do a video statement.
Perhaps if we could write a text, then Ray could assist with video technical production.
Perhaps Thomas could help us coordinate this.
Bailey translated the German press release.
Ivan Bartos will speak at the Munich Security Conference
Bailey will talk with them, and she will decide about whether we should make a video or let someone speak on our behalf in German.


2.9.2 TT4

We formulated the following conference theme and call for speakers, which is pending feedback and revisions.
