Discover the new freedom
Volla Phone


Volla Community Days 2022

UPDATED. For the fourth time we invite you again to the Volla Community Days on June 18-19. Learn about the latest developments on our Volla Phones, experience interviews and live demos and discuss your ideas and questions with us. For developers we organize a hackathon with prizes for the best results. We look forward to your participation at our location in Remscheid or the live broadcast on the Internet.

It's time for a change that we determine ourselves: For a freedom of time and attention that a digital world increasingly demands, for a freedom from paternalism and surveillance that have been driven not only by Big Tech. We would like to contribute to this freedom together with you, our users and partners.

The program of the Volla Community will be defined in the next days and weeks. We are waiting for the commitment of some Volla friends and partners who want to contribute in terms of content. But most of all we are looking forward to your ideas and questions we want to discuss. Do you have a suggestion for a topic? Just drop us a line. Suggestions are also welcome for the challenge of our hackathon.

On Saturday, we will probably have some program offerings in parallel or multilingual in German and English. Comments and questions in German or English are always welcome. Online requests are also possible in other languages thanks to DeepL. We will then also respond genre with a translation gin your language.

Participation and travel


Parallel to the live broadcast we will take questions from our Telegram chat.
