Who should come to HWC meetings?

Basically, every one.

Every one is welcome, and our goal is to make every one go home after each meeting having learned one thing, accomplished one thing, and spent a pleasant and interesting evening.

Hereunder is a short (but by no means exhausting) list of people who might be interested in joining us.

Yes, you!

HWC Brussels is inclusive. Our objective is to allow each and every one, regardless of your IT knowledge, to better understand the mechanisms of the web, and to tame them. To deconstruct de way we use the web, to better reconstruct it.

And above all, HWC Brussels is a pretext and a way to gather people, to share, discuss, to help each other while having a good time.

Come join us! Check out our calendar to find out when!

All kinds of non profits, NGOs, …

Reclaim control over your online data, your online presence, making an ethical and responsible use of the internet are some of the challenges that the associative community are facing and will face in the future.

HWC Brussels puts at your disposal a support structure, a meeting place to accompany you in the steps that will enable you to regain your digital autonomy, to claim control of your online activity, this control which once lost, means loss of privacy and freedom of speech.

The education sector

Our kids grow in an intrinsically digital world. The first generation to wake up to an ultra-connected world. The web is omni-present and a tool as indispensable and useful as it can dangerous. It is important that teachers, schools and training facilities of all kinds have the means to teach their students how to make a positive use of this technology.

HWC Brussels meetings can be an opportunity for you to learn about new web practices and to offer inexpensive, even completely free, solutions to learn with your students to self-host a website, manage their email server, produce and share content while retaining control over it, seeking and ordering information more effectively

In short, we want to help teachers and pupils alike become more autonomous and responsible Internet users and therefore better citizens.
