How might we use technology to solve some of the biggest challenges of our time?
We believe that the biggest challenges of our time can not be solved by one single person, but by collaboration from a diverse group of brilliant minds. We welcome you to take part in the Unsolved Unconference during Impact Week at Norrsken Foundation on September 17. We aim to create an energizing, inclusive and relaxed exchange of ideas, skills and knowledge.
So what is an unconference? An unconference is an unconventional conference. A gathering without predefined topics where you, the participants decide the topics and formats of the sessions as well as the outcome. You can either host a session, just participate or a combination of both. We will provide a high level structure and theme, with an opening and a closing. The actual topics are generated by you on the spot, and sessions will be formed based on interest and relevance. You are in charge!
There are a few guidelines that to help you make the most out of the Unconference.
- Law of two feet: If at any time you find yourself in any situation where you are neither learning nor contributing: go someplace else.
- The right people: Whoever shows up to the unconference and it’s sessions are the right people
- Active participation: this is not a passive conference, rather a co-owned and co-created space of active creation and participation. As a host, minimize lecture-style presentations.
