In June 2015 a group of Colombian governmental actors, digital educators, hackers, makers, environmental activists, farmers and entrepreneurs, came together in the Andes with the goal of leveraging synergies amongst each-other. Inspired by a unique location and embracing Design Thinking working practices, they have developed a common product that thanks to their complementary skills could be implemented only one week later!
This session will tell you the story of how collaboration between people that apparently work on different topics and in competend entities, with different goals can be leveraged by changing their mindsets and connecting them in a special location. Their common product was a technological solution that was inherent to everyone's work. The implementation of their idea could be done at the first stage in only one week due to the complementary skill set of the participants and the connecting elements: augemnted reality and food/farming.
