Ask questions – find new answers
How do we use creativity and innovation to find economically sustainable work opportunities for the community? What is the relationship between self-development and social transformation? How can we develop our potential as individuals and at the same time serve the community? These and many other questions will be explored by those involved in the conference.
Participants can expect a diverse programme: Various workshops, practice modules and short presentations on the entrepreneurial activities of the Community School Network throughout Nairobi. There will also be excursions to the slums and meetings with local artists, community organizers, entrepreneurs and the creators of CIFEFA, KDI (Kounkuey Design Initiative) and Wajuku Art Center in Nairobi.
