Annual Events

The Hague Hacks Festival

Our main ideation event of the year, where human rights meets the technology and other sectors to generate ideas and solution-concepts to human rights challenges.

Border Sessions

Dive into a specific topic or theme together with a diverse group of designers, hackers, students, entrepreneurs, artists, innovation managers, activists, citizens, and scientists, and build together towards a clear mission and goal.

Movies that Matter

Movies That Matter screen films that open eyes! Important activist films are viewed and discussed with the directors and actors to brainstorm new insights and projects that address the issues put forth in the movies.

Share your skills and expertise


The strength of our events hinges on the diversity of expertise and the motivation of our participants. Without your input, little progress would be made in solving the problems that we all want to see solved. We see public and corporate awareness increasing with respect to ecological and human rights violations, as well as the willingness to take action to prevent it. It’s a sector of our society which is now demanding the attention it is due. Which means it needs time and resources, also known as people and money. It is your call to do either/or, or both or neither. The choice is yours. Feel free to get in touch and get involved, or donate using the links provided and support of our work.
