Bringing together developers, designers and campaigners from around the globe to work for social good.

The Digital Participation Camp (DPC) is a network of young talented individuals who meet each summer at UNESCO School Schillergymnasium in Münster, Germany to work on projects that implement social change through digital technology. During its 10 day program the DPC creates a unique time and space of exchanging skills and ideas by like minded people. Our program ends with the Digital Participation Summit (DPS), an open event to highlight project results and discuss with experts from politics and media.
The DPC has been organised four years in a row since 2012. In 2017 we take a break to re-structure the DPC. Stay tuned for our program to be back in 2018!

    We realise that differences don´t matter, but the things we are fighting for is what brings us together.

    Alba González Cordero,

    I loved the DPC for the fact that so many different people with different backgrounds and skills worked together and shared their knowledge, inspire one another and develop new skills. The intercultural learning is one of the biggest advantages of the international camp.

    The Digital Participation Camp was an opportunity of a lifetime and I know it will indelibly shape my future career.

    Philipp Chan, Australia

    Meeting and collaborating with young people who are driven, creative and unafraid to change the world was truly inspiring and energizing. It unleashed a fervent desire to transform the little ideas at the back of my brain into reality. Even now, I am still buzzing and have started working on my own project.

    The DPC reaffirmed my belief that social change can be effectively carried out digitally.

    The thing I liked most about the DPC were the people. There were participants from all over the world attending the camp. They all had different backgrounds, skill-sets and perspectives on life. It is like being in a classroom with more than 90 teachers.
