All #futurespotters workshops documentation

This is an overview of what came out of futurespotters workshops in the form of rough documentation posts and video interviews.

If you were there and/or are thinking of ways to move forward and collaborate, don’t hesitate: leave a comment in the posts below or upload your own reflections in the #futurespotters workshop aftermath group. What we want to know is:

  1. What are you working on/trying to do and what is the story behind?
  2. What obstacles you are coming across?
  3. How the obstacles could be worked around/ a concrete call for action from others who like the initiative (what I the reader can do if I have 5 minutes, a couple of hours or a few days to contribute)?

Photo documentation

@Ahmed M Rabie and @Hazem. It would be great if the photos from the event had the SPF egypt logo on, names of the people in the image and descriptions that include

  1. a quote from one of the entries in this table /t/futurespotters-workshops-the-aftermath/567/all-futurespotters-workshops OR General description of Spot the Future
  2. Link to URL where you found quote
  3. Join the initiative + Url to Spot the Future general page

Clear, will start working on them

ok - coordination

@Ahmed M Rabie in order not to duplicate the work , how far did u go till now so I can join u

how to add more rows in the table

can someone help me here !! trying to add some rows in the table to add the new entries in the aftermath + the entries in caring for commons …etc .

in the table prop I can’t add it gives me 31 rows but not an editable slot !!


you need to hit edit, click for the simple text view (below the wysiswyg editor) and then add more of the tr (table rows) in it, go back to full view and add your new content in each row.

some photos

I tried to make some photos with quotes but I don’t know all of the participants - as I wasn’t in cairo :)- so need some help here to continue @gazbee sorour @Ahmed M Rabie or anyone !

may be we can also make this post a little bit pretty with some photos before tomorrow ?
