Workshop - Design principles for open source futur of food plateform
Limited Capacity seats available

Open-source communities has proven to be a very effective way to innovate and gain adoption in a short time. But building and sustaining open-source communities is not easy. How do we build momentum? Ensure quality? And create ownership for the community to self-sustain?

The Danish Design Center and Growstack.org invite you to take part in developing design principles for open source community-based innovation. At the workshop we invite everyone to share knowledge and best practice when we facilitate a hands-on session, where we co-create a set of principles for community-based innovation by asking how to:
  • Mobilize and lead a community
  • Ensure quality in a community-based project
  • Assign responsibilities and roles in the community
  • Align a disrtributed crowd towards a common mission
  • Ensure the right infrastructure for the community
  • Empower the co-creators to take ownership
The workshop is for everyone working with- or interested in open-source communities, who wants to share and gain knowledge. The outcome should be applicable for communities working across disciplines and industries, paving the way for successful open-source innovation.

Workshop - Food City
Limited Capacity seats available

Fab City // Food City

In the Fab City / Food City workshop we will work together on a vision
for self-sufficient cities & Food Commons. Can we
produce/transform/distribute/recycle healthy food using the urban and
the peri-urban areas? What building blocks do we have and which ones are
missing to get there? What are the leading examples? The workshop
addresses anyone who is interested in sustainable food systems, urban
agriculture, and food as a Commons.
