Starting August 15th, POC21 innovation camp will bring together 100+ makers, designers and social innovators to join forces at Millemont Castle near Paris. During five weeks of co-making and co-living, their goal is to prototype a new breed of open-source, sustainable products.
Ahead of the UN climate summit COP21, organizers OuiShare (Paris) and Open State (Berlin) want to deliver the proof of concept that a fossil-free, resource-efficient society can be build by citizen pioneers. Participants will embrace an unique creative process complete with mentoring sessions, work sprints, reality checks, campfire chats and more. The mission of POC21 is to inspire an action culture of makers that replace mass consumerism and to make open-source, sustainable products the new normal.
