Thursday September 13th and Friday September 14th it is going to happen again…. the 1%EVENT! The 1%EVENT is the event that connects smart ideas with people, knowledge and network from around the world. It’s the event where our community meets, connects and shares. In 2009 we organized the 1%EVENT for the first time. In 2010, it was organized in both Amsterdam and Naroibi. In 2011, 1%EVENT took place in 7 cities around the world. In these years we achieved amazing, innovative and creative results, so we are excited to see what the teams come up with this year!
This year young professionals in 9 cities from around the world will work on challenges and questions from our project owners. In every foreign city we have a partner organisation who is helping to make it work! Last week Active Spaces from Cameroon, the Tunisian Center for Social Entrepreneurship (TCSE) from Tunesia, Let’s do it Palestine from Palestine and ExtendedBITS from Somaliland, Sudanese Knowledge Society from Sudan and Nailab from Kenya introduced themselves as partners of our global co-creation.
