Rarely are Swedish authorities, formal and informal, as accessible as during Almedal Week. Almedalen should be open and inclusive - but everyone does not have the same opportunities to participate - neither as participants nor as organizers. Competition for attention means that even those who can buy space find it difficult to gain access to their target groups, the prices of accommodation and meeting rooms are an obstacle for economically weaker players and the content of discussions and meetings is not always available outside the circle of the physically present. Visby with its cobblestones and cultural buildings is also difficult to access for people with reduced mobility.

Can digital channels facilitate remote participation? Can the sharing economy reduce costs and increase the use of premises and other resources? Can algorithms improve matchmaking so that the right people find each other? Is there a digital forum that is really open all year round?

Contribute to the dialogue for a more open, more accessible Almedalen!

What happens next?
The ideas posted during the challenge are presented at a first workshop in Almedalen, July 3, at 16.00-17.30 at HejDigitalt. See: Future Almedalen - can digitization make the meeting place more accessible? - Almedalsveckan

To keep the discussion on accessibility alive even after Almedal Week, Openlab organizes a workshop based on this challenge, within the framework of OpenInn meetups.

Framtidens Almedalen – kan digitalisering göra mötesplatsen mer tillgänglig?

Kan digitala kanaler underlätta deltagande på distans? Kan delningsekonomin sänka kostnaderna och öka nyttjandet av lokaler och andra resurser? Kan algoritmer förbättra matchmaking så att rätt personer hittar varandra? Finns det något digitalt forum som verkligen är öppet året runt?

Bidra till dialogen för ett öppnare, mer tillgängligt Almedalen!

Vad händer sen?
Idéerna som postas under utmaningen presenteras vid en första workshop i Almedalen 3 juli, klockan 16.00-17.30 hos HejDigitalt. Se: Framtidens Almedalen – kan digitalisering göra mötesplatsen mer tillgänglig? - Almedalsveckan

För att hålla diskussionen om tillgänglighet levande även efter Almedalsveckan anordnar Openlab en workshop baserat på denna utmaning, inom ramen för OpenInn meetups.
