Hi OpenTechSchool Global Team!
How are you? I hope this finds you well!
I thought you’d be really interested in this, and might have some great ideas around it too; at the Open Knowledge Foundation we have just announced the Open Knowledge Festival for this summer. It’s a global gathering of open communities which is going to be held on July 15-17 in Berlin over 3 days of keynote lectures, discussion sessions, workshops, hackathons, sprints and more.
Because the festival is shaped by its participants, we (I happen to be part of the Programme Team) are asking for session proposals from anyone with great ideas for really participatory and outcome-driven sessions. You can find more information about the call for proposals here - check it out - I reckon you’ll be interested and could submit something great! And if you know anyone who you think would rock running and facilitating a session at the festival – please feel welcome to share the call far and wide!
Plus: a financial aid programme will be launched soon (to ensure a truly diverse participation) and English is not the mandatory language to run sessions. We’re going global!
Thank you for your kind attention. Looking forward receiving your terrific proposal(s)!
