Every summer, selected participants from all over the world come together in Münster, Germany, to live, learn and cooperate in terms of working on digital projects for social good.
The DPC provides all settings for 10 days to work on a project for social good, like travel costs, accommodation, mentorship and a team of participants with many skills.
These young activists are selected from a wide range of different professions – the DPC unites bloggers, content creators, developers (backend, frontend, mobile), designers, engineers, filmmakers, journalists, marketers, photographers, social entrepreneurs, videographers and on the ground activists.
The DPC provides a range of activities, from idea pitches and workshops to project creation and group work. The camp has supported the creation of over 10 social projects that deal with corruption in MENA, women rights empowerment platforms, intercultural understanding and breaking of stereotypes, fair journalism and media, and so on.
While the Digital Participation Camp addresses selected participants of the network, the Digital Participation Summit is an open event for everyone interested in social change, digital innovation and social media. The summit serves to present the project result of each year’s camp while connecting young professionals, change makers and experts from media, science and politics.

“We aim at creating an interactive and likewise international space to strengthen our efforts to make this world a little better place through the beneficial use of digital media.”
