For its 5th edition, OuiShare Fest Paris, 5-7 July, places cities at the center of attention. Can cities be the basis of democratic renewal? Will they find ways to conquer a political weight proportional to their demographic and economic power? Can global networks of cities take over from an exhausted international system? As a Platform for the city/of the citizens of The Hague Pakhuis de Règâh can’t miss out on this opportunity. Pleas join us! Or follow us throught #OSFest17
For this 5th edition, we invite cities and citizens with cutting-edge tools and radical solutions to join forces and build new alliances in order to achieve systemic change. Pakhuis de Règâh was invited to join. And so we will travel with a team of Smart Citizens to Paris.
OuiShare Fest is an invitation to step out of your comfort zone and connect with the people building the society of tomorrow. You’ll find a mix of entrepreneurial spirit and free minded people like nowhere else in the world, making it a great place for innovators of all kind.
We believe that new ways of thinking are needed to find solutions to the complex issues of our time. To create and foster a fertile ground for new ideas, we bring together entrepreneurs, innovative leaders and decision makers from a variety of countries and encourage them to confront their different perspectives through workshops and participative sessions.
OuiShare Fest is known for not only being a place of inspiration, but where valuable connections are made – for both your professional and personal life. The event is carefully designed to make connecting with others surprisingly effortless, whatever tribe they belong to.
Private dinners for deeper connections, live performances to spark conversations, music and dance to celebrate… OuiShare Fest does not only challenge attendees intellectually, but aims to invigorate their mind, body and soul.
The first OuiShare Fest was held in Paris in 2012. Since then, OuiShare has spread across Europe, North & Latin America and the Middle East. Since OuiShare Fest is open source, OuiShare communities around the world have created their own OuiShare Fests: Colaboramerica was first held in Rio in 2016, Barcelona has already held two OuiShare Fests and Montreal launched Eco2Fest in 2016.
