Kurzthese: 

In this session AfriMaker team members are going to show case some of the solutions created and discuss why using local know-how and hands-on prototyping for solving local challenges is more effective in creating access to clean water, energy, and information than large top-down projects.

Beschreibung: 

The idea for AfriMakers was born at re:publica 2013 – since then the AfriMakers tour, initiated by HacKIDemia, has kickstarted maker workshops focused on local challenges in 8 hubs around Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Zambia, Ghana, Nigeria, Egypt, Botswana). Local teams have created air quality monitoring stations, agriculture pest maps, solar chargers, water filters, and mobile laser cutters. AfriMaker team members are going to show case some of the solutions created and discuss why using local know-how and hands-on prototyping for solving local challenges is more effective in creating access to clean water, energy, and information than large top-down projects.

 

This session is organized by AfriMakers and is part of the GLOBAL INNOVATION GATHERING programme.
