There is a wiki page collecting feedback for #35c3 – please add your voice! https://events.ccc.de/congress/2018/wiki/index.php/Feedback
At least 7 discussion meetups about #climatechange took place during #35c3. We are excited to announce one of the results: a new orga team @c3sustainability formed, to work towards #sustainable and #climate-neutral CCC events (camp, congress, regional events). We want to work out effective and practicable measures and suggest them to existing orga teams to improve current practices. Do you want to get involved? We can use your ideas and support! Check out https://hacc.uber.space/c3sustainability #hacc
Just a reminder for everyone at #35c3:
The fediverse meetup is tomorrow at 14.00 in Lecture Room M3
