The conference theme this year is “Co-create a better world”. We have selected this theme to emphasize a refreshing conference experience whereby international participants are given opportunities, by design, to co-create solutions with local makers and organizations that seek to make an impact. To do so, the organizer will enable international and local participants to team up and work together, over a period of 3 days. Teams will brainstorm and prototype hands-on solutions that address a challenge in the local context or improve upon an existing solution. A pop-up fablab will be set up to serve this purpose.
