The congress day will be organized in 3 different categories:
- how do we cooperate and share?
- how do we communicate more effectively?
- how we are open to the participation of others?
- how resilient and co-sufficient can we actually be?
- "free as in puppy"
- "by cooperation not corporation"
- LETS go #PropSoftFree.
Every talk, presentation and workshop during the techcongress will be related to one or more of the above categories.
In the following we would like to present you the events which will take place including a brief explanation and reference for further research.
The whole congress, inclusive the events, channels of communication and projects are following the principle "work in progress".
A one day congress will never be able to draw the whole image of the movment we would like to start with you.

As we are a big alternative community here in the Alpujarras, we need alternatives places and tools for our material stuffs. It's the reason why we want to build a recycling and workshops network around Orgiva and the Alpujarras. For the moment, a place in Orgiva is already ready to receive all your old electronic devices, bateries, cables... Soon we will have a webpage with more informations about this project, linked to the repair cafe project.
