Taking place from 9 – 11 July 2020, Campus Party Digital Edition is three days of free, on-demand conferences by tech, gaming, creativity, and design innovators around the world. Here’s what’s happening on the South African stage.
A range of stellar South African and international speakers will be taking the stage to discuss how to reboot your career during the COVID-19 Crisis with Wiebke Toussaint and Zuki Mzozoyana; some encouraging and inspiring youth led response to COVID-19 in South Africa with Tsitsi Sekgobela and Sarah Madingwana; and African innovation at the forefront of building back better with Kathy Berman.
With a line-up that includes some of the most dynamic talent from this country, the local schedule, which runs for eight hours daily over three days, and includes nearly 45 home-grown innovators, will not disappoint. Key local speakers include:
Neo Hutiri, inventor of the digital chronic medication Pelebox, which was named by Time magazine as one of the top inventions of 2019.
Tracy Lee Lynch, Creative Director the Nando’s Design Programme, which is responsible for the complete design of every Nando’s outlet globally, all by local designers – and has installed over 6 000 hand-made design objects from local designers across the world.
Ian Calvert of Further, the force behind the revolutionary Red Bull Amaphiko Accelerator, which changed the careers of over 2 500 emerging social entrepreneurs across Europe, Africa, North and South America.
Kathy Berman of Innovation Space Consulting, whose focus in all her innovation and community work has led her to present Africa is Awesome: Innovation in Africa.
Jenn van den Bussche of Sticky Situations – an architect and urban change catalyst, whose work includes public art as well as WASSUP #adoptatoilet – a project in Diepsloot that trains women plumbers to repair the few portaloos that service the informal settlement.
