The Festival is back! We meet on April 28 on the occasion of Superhero Day. It is an international edition, and the working language is English.
You can watch us LIVE here:
Coronavirus is changing the world – shuts down, slows down, makes us lonely… However, some people and organisations are fighting its effects. Sometimes they are nurses creating makeshift libraries within makeshift hospitals; they are taxi drivers who take health staff to the hospital, free of charge; they are tailors making masks; the community of makers sharing open source gadgets; bikers who bring hygiene kits to the homeless; some governments granting citizenship rights to all migrants or passing aid packages; they are common people who are launching crowdfunding for informal workers; they are entrepreneurs creating new Apps; they are mayors who prepare the city for opening with new cycling and pedestrian areas; they are cleaners, caregivers, delivery people, cooks, scientists and musicians who play from their balconies.
The upcoming festival will be about them and with them as our theme is: How the world responds to COVID-19?
- the edition will take one day (28.04), and it will be held in two three-hour blocks: 10-13:20, 19-22 (CEST),
- all will be conducted in English,
- we will connect with initiatives and people who fight the effects of coronavirus from around the world,
- you will be able to ask your questions to the speakers.
