1ST NATIONAL MEETING OF THE PUBLIC BLOGOSPHERE
Organised by the Public Innovators' Club (CIP) within the framework of the #CICD, the 1stNational Meeting of the Public Blogosphere will bring together the principal influencers in the field of innovation in public administration. The aim? To talk about trends, the latest news and the diverse areas of activity linked to the digital world, open government and innovative administrations.
The event will also feature internal debates with live streaming and open sessions held through the social media. As a tangible outcome, at the end of the debates participants will draft a set of conclusions.
CHARITY SMARTPHONES: AHORA TE TOCA A TI (NOW IT'S YOUR TURN)
How would you imagine a mobile phone app if you had lived all your life in a place with little or no technology? If you had never even seen a smartphone before? Ahora te toca a ti (Now it’s your turn) is a vibrant, living exhibition that tells the story of an initiative carried out by Colabora Birmania in early 2012, which aimed to help Burmese children who, having fled the harsh military dictatorship of their homeland, are now living as refugees on the Thai-Burma border.
The exhibition charts the evolution of this initiative, in which a group of volunteers (creative experts, producers, photographers, etc.) travelled to the Thai city of Mae Sot, located on the Thai-Burmese border, to provide hands-on help to these children. The project was carried out in the town itself, with the children themselves drawing the screens, graphic elements and app buttons using coloured sand. They also enjoyed playing around with the app sounds. The group returned with a plethora of experiences and anecdotes and an app that changes the ground rules: people can donate money and see in a matter of seconds which project their donation has been earmarked for. They can also see how much is still left before the targets are met.
In short, the #CICD will be establishing a new space which, taking advantage of new technological devices and networks, aims to exploit human potential to the full, not only as a source of inspiration and individual and collective satisfaction, but also as a means of accepting and celebrating our differences and fostering democracy.
THE BEST DIGITAL ADVERTS FROM CANNES
What is advertising? An art? Seduction? An interruption? The answer is probably different for everyone. And yet, it is easy for us all to agree that sometimes, adverts attain a level of creative and technical excellence that is on a par with that of a mini-film.
The #CICD brings to San Sebastián the very best of the Cannes Advertising Festival, with a non-stop screening of the best adverts linked to the digital world, technology and networks. Although it is specially targeted at advertising fans, we believe this initiative will also be of interest to any creative mind seeking entertainment and inspiration in these evocative and thought-provoking messages.
