This year we gather in Nakuru, Kenya from the 5th until the 7th of December with four collaborative tracks!
From Digital Detox to Open Science for Peacebuilding, through concrete projects, DOTS aims to find collaborative solutions to systemic problems in different localities
SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS > COLLABORATIVE SOLUTIONS
Climate change, economic inequality and political divisions are only becoming more pressing challenges in the whole world. As a network of networks, hubs and individuals, we want to jointly implement change through concrete and tangible projects.
We will use the power of a gathering to cocreate and implement long-term projects that offer collaborative solutions to systemic problems in different localities.
Dots will converge with with r0g_agency for open culture’s #ASKnet programme: a community based hub development program linking six start-up MIL and innovation hubs in South Sudan, Uganda and Kenya. The event will be hosted by the youngest of the #ASKnet hubs, Nakuru based ASKlab! Situated in the Nakuru locality of Lanet, DOTS brings together a broad range of knowledge sharing, entrepreneurial and open innovation activists from across East Africa and beyond to cross-mentor and explore new modus operandi across the vibrant GIG network
