The girls and guys from OpenSimSim are dedicated to a hugely important topic these days: Can Open Design do something to save us all?
In a huge global effort they pulled together ca. 200 participants in 10 different countries to participate in a three-day work sprint. The aim is to generate 99 ideas for Japan on 3 different scales – village/city, building, person/product. The ideas will be stored as open source ideas in an online cloud available to everyone who wants to start a project.
Why are they doing this, you ask? The answer is simple.
“We at OpenSimSim believe that monetary assistance helps but is not necessarily the only solution. By launching the initiative “OpenJapan”, we would like to offer the opportunity to donate other valuable resources: time, knowledge and experience.”
The Berlin WorkSprint will take place at STATION BERLIN close to Gleisdreieck.
