PROGRAMME AND FAQs
The Applied Anthropology Network is proud to announce the programme for WWNA 2022: Re/Generation in Berlin, Germany. Day 1 will set out four exciting keynote talks on bold and engaging topics based on the strands of this year’s theme. Day 2 will see a day of WWNA staples, action and inspiration-focused Workshops and snappy, energetic Perspectives presentations. Day 3 will open with an exciting documentary screening, get hands-on with attendees around what they need for their applied work, and allow us to blow off some steam as we celebrate this the tenth edition of Why the World Needs Anthropologists.
Details about how attendees can participate and engage online will be announced here soon.
Hot and cold drinks, light snacks and finger food will be provided on Friday and Saturday. Conveniently located restaurants will be suggested for lunch and dinner. On Sunday, we will provide hot and cold drinks and invite participants to join us for birthday cake during our AAN Network Meeting.
Do I have to be vaccinated to attend the event?
Yes. Please note that either 2G or 3G rule will apply, in accordance with local health and federal authorities in Berlin. Check back on our website for latest information closer to the event.
What´s a 2G/3G – is it the same as 5G?!
Nope! Here is some local terminology for you – the G is for the German words “Geimpft” (vaccinated), “Getestet” (tested), “Genesen” (recovered).
Can I buy a physical ticket but attend only online if my travel is impeded last minute?
Yes, but please note that in this case, your physical ticket will NOT be reimbursed.
What counts as “last minute”?
No later than September 9, 2022. Please do be aware that tickets are very limited, and there will likely be a waiting list. Please be kind to those waiting to join onsite if you cannot make it, and let us know as early as possible.
What if you have to cancel the physical event and move it all online due to corona?
In this highly unlikely event, all physical tickets will be converted to digital ones and the prorated difference in price will be reimbursed to physical ticket holders.
Do I need a travel insurance?
We do not require it but very, very, very strongly recommend it, given new variants emerging in Europe and present in Germany.
I have accessibility concerns, who should I talk to?
We will be working to make the conference as accessible and friendly as possible. Please contact our Accessibility coordinator Allura Warden by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and write “WWNA22 Accessibility” in the subject line.
Can I bring my child?
Yes. We are child friendly, and it is an intergenerational conference after all. But please give us a heads up because depending on how old the child is, we may have to count it as an adult in terms of physical occupancy. Be advised: if you bring your child, we will attempt to make sure it becomes an anthropologist later in life. It’s the best future for anyone.
Can I bring my parents?
We would love love love to include your parents – the parents of anthropologists are even cooler than anthropologists themselves. Physical capacity however sadly means we can only accommodate them virtually.
Will you add stuff about airport transfer, currency, local transportation and things like that?
Yes. Please check back closer to the date and on our social media. The minimum viable guide to Berlin is currently being prepared.
What is the meaning of life?
