Homo Digitalis meets MEP Alexis Georgoulis and his team at European Parliament
On October 2, 2019 Homo Digitalis had the great honour and pleasure to meet Mr. Alexis Georgoulis, Member of the European Parliament (MEP) and his team lead at the EP, Mr. Manos Kalaintzis.
The discussion was very productive and we had the chance to get informed about updates on the question of the use of the application FaceApp raised by MEP Georgoulis earlier in July 2019 and the official response he received a few days ago by Commissioner Jourová on behalf of the European Commission.
We also talked about the actions and goals of Homo Digitalis and the importance in raising the awareness of Greek public regarding the protection of their personal data and privacy during the current digital age.
Finally, we talked about Freedom Not Fear 2019 and the annual meeting of activists regarding the protection of personal data and privacy, which will take place between 8 – 11 November in Brussels.
We remind you that registrations are still open and you can apply for travel allowances. Very few seats are available. You can learn more on our website here (in Greek).
We would like to wholeheartedly thank MEP Alexis Georgoulis and Manos Kalaintzis for the interesting, constructive and productive discussion and meeting. It is satisfying and encouraging to notice that MEPs and their teams have such a strong interest in the protection of Human Rights in the modern digital era and we would be delighted to stay in contact in the near future.
We would be delighted to meet other MEPs and their teams in order to discuss and exchange ideas! ‘Freedom not Fear 2019’ appears to be a good occasion as many of our members will be in Brussels between 8-11 November 2019. You are more than welcome to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
