Thank you for being part of something truly special.
September 5-10, 2017: More than 16,000 humans gathered in Copenhagen to explore the impact of technology on our lives.
Over the course of six days 132 events took place in & around Kødbyen, Copenhagen’s iconic Meatpacking District. Together with people of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities we started a new conversation on the relationship between humans & technology.

The Copenhagen Letter
To debate and draft The Copenhagen Letter, 150 practitioners came together for 48 hours during Techfestival in 2017. They include technologists, designers, philosophers, educators, and artists.
This letter mirrors their commitment, starting a conversation on the values and principles that guide technology.
