WAVE exhibition in conjunction with the Crowdsourcing Week will be in Brussels from 21 to 25 November 2016. CrowdSourcing Week participants will be invited to discover collective and frugal innovation through the WAVE exhibition and its five collective ingenuity currents.
What is WAVE exhibition?
Collective ingenuity is this capacity that individuals have for finding simple and effective solutions, together, for doing more with less is at that heart of the WAVE project.
WAVE exhibition explores 5 currents of collective ingenuity: co-creation, maker movement, inclusive economy, circular economy and sharing economy. Drawing on a wide range of concrete examples, the WAVE exhibition explores the major currents on every continent. These examples feature people from all walks of life who share a positive vision of the world of tomorrow.
What is crowdsourcing?
Crowdsourcing is the practice of engaging a ‘crowd’ or group for a common goal — often innovation, problem solving, or efficiency. Crowdsourcing can take place on many different levels and across various industries. Thanks to our growing connectivity, it is now easier than ever for individuals to collectively contribute — whether with ideas, time, expertise, or funds — to a project or cause. This collective mobilization and activation is crowdsourcing.
From Crowdsourcing to … Crowdsourcing Week!
Crowdsourcing Week was founded in 2012 and since then produced three flagship global conferences, organized crowdsourcing summits across three continents, and built excitement around a global movement.
Crowdsourcing Week (CSW) connects people with the latest ideas and best practices in crowdsourcing and crowd innovation globally. CSW help organizations to transition and thrive in the new economy through their worldwide conferences & summits, online educational programs, workshops and consultancy.
Their big, ambitious goal is to get everyone thinking about collaborating with their stakeholders to create shared value.
