The Kinnernet Un-Conference is coming to Portugal this Summer – 13 to 16 JUL 2017

The Kinnernet Unconference is an informal gathering of 120 like-minded individuals – thought leaders, technology addicts and other creative people, that gives everyone an opportunity to discuss topics and concepts that are of interest to them, share their thoughts, work-in-progress and tackle challenging problems.

Together we will try to figure out where our physical and digital worlds are heading, and what are the prevailing trends.

You go to Kinnernet not as a delegate but as a participant. Collaboration is valued over hierarchy, discussions over statements. Known as an ‘un-conference’, crowd-sourcing determines the content of each event, which begins with an empty whiteboard to be filled by attendees with ideas for discussions. Everyone is expected to participate and contribute.
