This stream will feature interactive events like the CBNE Hackathon, a collective problem-solving competition, and will have sessions on topics such as Participatory Certification and Sustainable Brands. Exploring opportunities for the youth, especially in seeking technological solutions and strategies to bridge gaps and create value, is also a target of this stream. A special market place page has been created as well so participants have access to products made by CBNEs and their partners.
This is the window that will stimulate purchases from CBNEs that will help them reach new markets. Sales have been difficult during the pandemic, but through this vendors page, participants are able to visit virtual marketplaces of partner vendors which feature CBNE products. After assisting in initial connections, the forum will place the participants in touch with vendors of their choice to continue transactions independently.
Open throughout the forum. No registration required.
The hackathon master is Birdie Salva, General Manager of Curiosity Design Research. The mentors of this session are Rock Gonzales, Design MNL, Cecile Schimmel, the Bali Curator, Melissa Yeung Yap, Got Heart Group of Companies, Jusupta Tarigan, NTFP EP Indonesia, Ruth Canlas, NTFP- EP Philippines.
