Future Makers is an experimental initiative that aims to explore what happens when we combine the strengths of different networks (and their working styles) in novel collaborations, projects and online event formats. We invite artists, hackers, lawyers, activists, researchers, doctors etc to collaboratively build a “guide” to networked collaboration for activists and innovators in which the book is the “score”, and the online events the “performance”.
The purpose of the exercise is to identify people, groups and projects that today are marginal, but could have a large influence in shaping up the near future in Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Egypt and Morocco.
It is run jointly by UNDP and UNV, the United Nations Development and Volunteering arms respectively. This project is meant for designing a new United Nations program for the future of youth volunteering in employment, social protection and data.
Who it is for: Anyone passionate about their project. Citizens and representatives of initiatives related to unemployment, migration, poverty, environment and use of common spaces, arts, do-it-yourself approaches, community health and wellbeing, innovative civic participation channels etc.
Come meet one of the founders of Edgeryders - Alberto Cottica and bring your experience and stories to share over some tea and biscuits!
