Come meet me at the "Liberty in Our Lifetime" event in October :)
In Prague, the 14th and 15th of October
I'll be at the "Liberty in Our Lifetime" event in Prague, the 14th and 15th of October.
It's an event organized by the creators of the Free Cities movement and Prospéra, focusing on new forms of governance such as SeaSteading and Free Cities.
I attended last year and loved it, so I'm going back again this year: come and get all the exciting info, and meet entrepreneurs, libertarians and experimenters in the field (and yours truly).
Because I'm a Tipolis shareholder (one of the companies behind Prospéra), I was able to negotiate a 10% discount for people using the promo code “roland”, feel free to use it at the checkout ! :)
Official Program of the Event
Liberty in Our Lifetime is the annual conference for the global Free Cities community.
Hundreds of like-minded supporters of liberty will gather in the heart of historic Prague for an unmissable weekend of ideas, networking and fun.
The theme for this year’s event in “Opt in to Freedom”. We’ve chosen this because being part of a Free City isn’t just about opting out of legacy systems that no longer serve us, it’s about making a positive choice to build and participate in a new kind of society. For this reason, most of the talks at this year’s conference will include some practical steps – like resettling, becoming an eResident or joining an online community – that attendees can take to be a part of Free Cities.
The two-day program, from October 14-15, will showcase the latest from Free Cities projects as well as talks on broader topics related to personal liberty.
The Liberty in Our Lifetime conference is the best place to learn about Free Cities: self-governing territories that uphold individual rights and freedoms.
Representatives from Free Cities projects in Honduras, the US, Germany, Norway and beyond will join to share updates on progress and explain how you could benefit from moving to or doing business in a Free City.
To get a flavor of what to expect, watch the short film Parallel Structures for Progress that was filmed at last year’s event.
The event will feature an incredible lineup of speakers including principal of Zaha Hadid Architects Patrik Schumacher, investor Patri Friedman and inventor of the “Free Cities” concept Titus Gebel.
Traveling alone? Don’t worry. There’ll be icebreaker activities and plenty of opportunities to get to know new people.
