Limited Capacity filling up

OpenCon’s mission is to catalyse action towards contextual culture change, at scale. One of our first experiments in doing this is to create ways to give participants the opportunity to constructively identify, understand, and tackle challenges that matter where they are. In these workshops, participants will use design thinking to create shareable, concrete outputs from the workshop that can give birth to regional collaboration, novel ideas for action, projects to rally around, and a deeper understanding of challenges. We hope this will feed into OpenCon’s Do-a-thon, where participants will report back on their learnings, deepen them, and get a chance to take action. Remote participants will be invited to input into these outputs before, during and after the meeting.
