If you’re into design, technology, innovation and world-changing stuff that still has to become mainstream, then PICNIC (web, twitter) is an event you shouldn’t pass (disclaimer: I worked for picnic as Marketing Manager for the 2009 and 2010 editions).
The Early Bird Ticket expires on July 1st, 2011
… so hurry up to get yours! (the Early bird is 30% less than the full 3-day ticket and 25% less from the 1-day ticket).
The theme for 2011 is: Urban Futures
The world is undergoing the largest wave of population growth in history: we are looking at more than 8 billion people in 2030 and essentially all of the growth will take place in the less developed countries, concentrated among the poorest populations in urban areas. By that time at least 70% of the world population will be living in an urban environment.
We’re looking to engage you and others of the world’s most creative and innovative minds at PICNIC Festival 2011. Join us investigating several urban future scenarios, including perspectives on:
Sustainability: waste, water, green energy, pollution, Co2, building green, nano-tech, urban gardens, economy, bio-tech, food.
Society: governance, open data, health, education, social cohesion, poverty, democratization, privacy, aging, immigration, safety.
Design: city planning, architecture, health care, educational system, green, social change, data visualization, products, services.
urban screens, social media, gamification, trans media, augmented city, open versus closed, privacy, social engineering.
