A new world is being built by people working far outside the mainstream. Spot the future is about connecting the protagonists, hackers, social innovators to their peers. Both those in other parts of the world, and the next door neighbour we meet every day, but didn’t know was so capable and creative! So we can learn from and support one another.
Edgeryders are going to Yerevan as part of a tour to meet these great people and projects, while taking on the mission to showcase them in our global network.
As with all Edgeryders events, this one is highly informal and participants are the protagonists. Expect a hands on introduction of how our network uses online collaboration to coordinate work on individual and community projects. We’re making sure we give it enough time to get to know each other, what are the challenges we’re facing in our work, what resources we can put together and make use of, assuming that no one is coming to the rescue. as well as lot of networking and good food
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.
Location : Mher Mkrtchyan 10, near the UNDP office, in an old Yerevan style 2 floor building’s inner yard
