Creating opportunitites for exchange and innovation through resource development
We love hosting and collaborating on events related to our mission of making ideas possible. These can be educational or for private organizations and NGO. We have hosted hackathons with our partners throughout Spain. In Feburary, we had the opportunity to lead a Design Sprint with the participants of theVIPS Value project (https://vipvalues.cibervoluntarios.org/en/).
Very much aligned with our mission, VIPS Values is an EU funded project that aims aims to raise awareness about the issue of young refugees and immigrants in the European Union by offering ICT training as an innovative solution. We loved the challenge of working with professionals from all over Europe on a topic that we are very much dedicated to as well. We created a design sprint for participants that focused on issues that individuals coming to Europe may face, like educational opportunities, employment, and health. The sprint was two hours long of intense conversation, ideating and innovating among participants.
It was a lot of fun to see conversation flow, new ideas blossom and connections be made.
