IWDK Tech Festival showcases the many opportunities the internet opens up for our citizens and our businesses. But IWDK is also a forum where we can articulate and debate the challenges digital technologies present to our society. With a six day digital festival, and more than 10.000 participating guests we wish to ‘tech it forward’ by sharing experiences and knowledge in order to find new solutions through tech.
IWDK Tech Festival 2022 takes place from May 3 – 8, 2022 and is a hybrid festival, with a mix of physical events and live streaming. This year it’s a little different as we want to take technology and society forward by calling for action through tech innovation and high quality happenings.
Every year the festival continues to grow and this year is no exception. From the very beginning, IWDK has been all about the ecosystem in Aarhus and how we can break down boundaries and collaborate in even stronger directions with a higher output.
With this year’s theme – TECH IT FORWARD, we ask you to join us on a search to take action on talks, debates & real action. Let’s create and take our society forward through tech innovation.
IWDK22 will also be different because this year we are proud to present three different track partners who, throughout the festival, will be leading their own tech track: Green Tech, Entrepreneur and Citizen. This is how we ensure that all interests and networks are taken into account, with the obvious opportunity of gaining insights within different interdisciplinary industries, sharing knowledge and competencies through tech.
IWDK is a Aarhus-based festival celebrating the tech industry and the importance of digital technology in the development of a green transition within all aspects of society. The festival showcases the opportunities the internet opens for our citizens and our businesses. It is a forum for knowledge-sharing, learning, social meetings, networking, doing, creating & showcasing new projects. But most importantly IWDK is a platform where the tech industry and society together can take action on our biggest challenges transforming burning platforms to innovative new possibilities.
This year IWDK will take place from May 3-8 2022 and all events are free.
Aarhus Municipality is the founder of IWDK, but in 2022 there are several partners, who are responsible for facilitating the festival. Culture Works is the lead operator and is responsible for tying all the tech-knots together including the crowdsourced events. The festival is divided into three different tracks, each with its own operator as listed below.
This year’s theme will be Tech It Forward. The knowledge and power available in the tech industry is key in the crucial green and human-centered resurrection of our future world, and therefore this year’s festival will focus on “How can green growth and digital transformation unite to drive humanity forward, not backward?’.
In 2022 IWDK will be a hybrid festival. It means that our primary focus will be to arrange events and happenings where we meet in person. However, we also want to showcase IWDK as an inclusive and open festival, which is why selected events will be livestreamed. This also gives us the important opportunity to embrace stakeholders who do not have the opportunity to visit Aarhus.
