The #OpenVillage Festival is dedicated to dedicated to bringing together existing projects into a demo of a new health and social care system powered by open source, community driven solutions- what we call OpenCare.
We are interested what people already are doing in different parts of the world, and what we can do together. The project starts from the assumption that state and private institutions will be unable to meet the demands for care in the 21st century and that new, more open, participatory, community-based methods are required.
The #OpenVillage Festival is a #nospectators space nested within Edgeryders, a friendly and supportive online community of 3000+ individuals who are trying to make a positive difference in their communities. All content is contributed by participants. The program is curated around a number of themes, each approaching from a different angle the question of how we take care of one another as old welfare models and systems fail.
Join us on October 19-12, 2017 in Brussels!
