JugendPolitCamp 2020 from 10th to 13th of April
What is the JugendPolitCamp?
The JugendPolitCamp (JPC) is a barcamp for teenagers and young adults. The participants decide together what they want to talk about. They exchange knowledge and talk about topics from politics and society (more information about the format can be found here).
The JPC (#jpc20) takes place for the ninth time this year. It is open to teenagers and young adults from 14 to 27 years. Normally it takes place at the ABC Bildungs-und Tagungszentrum near Hamburg. This year, due to the Corona crisis, we are planning it purely digitally for the first time.
Participation is also possible on individual days. To join, you must register at the bottom of this website AND via https://barcamptools.eu/jpc20/events. We will send you all the information by mail directly after your registration via the form.
The JPC starts on 10.4. at 10h and ends on 13.4. about 15h. The exact times can be found at https://barcamptools.eu/jpc20/events.
How will the JPC work and what technology will it require?
To participate in the JPC you need a computer with internet access. This can be a smartphone or a PC, laptop or tablet. The most important thing is that a microphone is connected to it and that the device has speakers for audio output. A camera is also important but not essential. We recommend that you use a laptop or PC because it is easier to use and you see more than on a smartphone. The use of a headset is also recommended.
For the sessions we use Zoom, an online provider for video conferencing. But you do not have to show yourself if you do not want to. You can either participate with audio only or with audio and video. In addition to video and audio meetings, Zoom also offers the option of sharing your own screen. So your own presentations are no problem. More information about Zoom will be available shortly before the JPC. Currently there is a lot of discussion about zoom, on this page there is more information about why we use the tool.
We have also set up our own Discord server, we will send you the link to it after your registration. Discord is a free software. It allows us all to get together, write and talk to each other in different areas. All important announcements and arrangements will take place there. This also applies to written communication during the JPC. Download the JPC Discord, create an account and have a look around! You can find more information here.
f you need help with the technology, please contact us before the event! We want everyone to be able to participate – regardless of technical knowledge.
Otherwise, there will not be much change in the organization and the procedure. We will meet every morning to plan the sessions for the day together. Afterwards these will be implemented and visited by you.
There is one more special feature: You can actively contribute to the evenings by preparing a concert, a reading, a game or other content that can be transported digitally. There will also be a channel for this content.
The documentation is especially important this time. For this we use doku.jugendpolit.camp.
Is there a participation fee?
The JPC costs money, but we do not want to exclude anyone. Therefore we offer different prices. If a donation for the ABC Bildungs-und Tagungszentrum (organizer) is possible for you, please indicate a self-chosen price after self-assessment. Every Euro helps to ensure the maintainance of the ABC in the Corona-crisis and thus to make a #JPC21 possible. If you cannot afford it, you can also participate for free.
Because we want to enable as many people as possible to pay online we have Paypal as a payment option besides bank transfers. But we are happy if it is possible for you to make a regular bank transfer so that the money goes completely to us and not to the payment service.
We ask for some personal data such as address and gender when you register. This is necessary for our funding agencies. Your personal data will not be published anywhere, they are only important for us as organizers and for the sponsors. For the event itself you can of course use another name of your choice.
