MAKER FAIRE ROME – OPENING CONFERENCE “COMMONGROUND: INNOVATION KEEPS US TOGETHER”

Thursday 06 October @ 17:30 - Area ex Gazometro - Via Ostiense, 82

Commonground I Innovation keep us together” is the theme of the Opening Conference of the 10th edition of Maker Faire Rome.

A theme that is both a confirmation and a pledge, that celebrates the “connected” worlds, the communities of changemakers who are re-design the scenarios we move in and activating social change to generate new models and solutions that hold the potentials to push the world ahead, one step at time.

Together with world-famous speakers, we will explore:

  • how innovation represents a “common ground” and “common good” for everyone, whatever the industry they belong to and work for;
  • how an “innovation mindset” is key for individual and social progress;
  • how this “commonground” and this “common good” values are expressed by different industries and sectors.
