Pirates Without Borders has supported the Think Twice Conference with 500 € as one of the association’s first movements back to life. Think Twice took place in February 22nd and 23rd in Frankfurt am Main; its aim was to bridge between the worlds of the Pirate Parties, Academia and NGO to foster a mutual exchange on ideas and experiences that are worth spreading.
