GIG would like to invite you to ‘The Forum Open: Hardware #FOH23’ happening on March 13, 2023 in Berlin.
The “circular society/ economy ‘ and the right to repair are seen as paths to a sustainable future. But how do we get there? What role do civil society and open technology design play in this? We would like to pose these questions and attempt to answer them at #FOH23.
Our founder, Geraldine de Bastion will be leading a workshop as part of the International Knowledge Transfer track. You can find a preliminary program below.
We are happy to have you there! If you want to be kept up to date and for registration go on the link below, you can also reply to this email and I can help.
Innovation Global Exhibition will also be physically present where you can learn about GIG’s makers and designers in Brazil, South Sudan or Nepal and more.
