Global Innovation Gathering (GIG) is a vibrant, diverse community of innovation hubs, makerspaces, hackerspaces and other grassroot innovation community spaces and initiatives as well as individual innovators, makers, technologists and changemakers.
|Why are you GIG?||
The world needs a safe space for people who understand that innovation is not a technical term, but that (digital) technologies in our time are a means to the end of social innovation. That safe space did not exist, and I am incredibly grateful that we are creating it together every day!
I think I have worked with ~80% of the GIGers at some point, mostly "only" on events and networking. GIGers I work or have worked with on bigger projects include of course the GIG Team, SuperBoard and Auditors; all GIGers based along the route of the Labmobile trip from South Africa to Uganda in 2019/20; GIGers based in South Sudan and Uganda and all mentors who were involved in #ASKnet.
