We’re looking to build the event so as to make it possible to ensure follow up: design expectations so that once we meet in June people know what is possible up next. This depends to a large extend by UNDP.
For Marina: the first event in April brought fragmented results -> good if we can connect the dots, give the opportunity for people to network and share skills and tools; Increase the impact of individual projects. How? Example -Innovation Labs at UNDP Armenia is an incubator offering networks, resources, and so little startups can be compiled to be supported by UNDP
All UNDP teams: please put up a post describing how you personally see the event unfolding, what are you expecting to happen that you can plug in later, once the event and Spot the Future is over.
- What would you like to figure out together with other participants?
- What practical resources are offered to participants’ initiatives?
- What is required of would be participants to make you support their work or possible collaborations coming out of the event?
REGISTRATION AND SELECTION OF PAID SPOTS
- Tell us you’re coming on the event page
- Help shape the event by joining the social media team or proposing a session you want to lead
Everyone who is interested to participate and doesn’t know how should simply go to the event page saying so and what they are willing to contribute to help organize the event. We are giving it roughly two weeks to send personal invitations with offer to cover costs, so this needs to happen fast!
We have limited budget to cover for travels and lodging, and the sooner people register and tell us how they want to get involved, the better their chances…
Especially for Egyptians registration needs to happen as soon as possible for visa requirements reasons.
Things we are looking from participants in order to make an offer to cover costs:
-active participation and introduction of personal stories and interests on the platform
-willingness to collaborate with others and get things done
-look at the network graph and see who has been actively engaging with other people here on Edgeryders
-Marina to look into costs of a bus to transport participants from Yerevan to Tbilisi
-UNDP country teams to cover their own travels and book places to stay at. Book now as it’s getting expensive!
Don’t worry about proximity to location: if the event venue is outside Tbilisi, UNDP Georgia will help organize transportation for participants from the city centre to the location
TO DOs for everyone in the team, 2 main things:
