FinTech for SDG's

The traditional education systems were not designed to teach us how to break boundaries and collaborate! While we understand that education alone cannot achieve a more sustainable future; however, learning systems represent the most powerful, systemic and massive lever to transform societies.

This collective conversation aims to bring together alternative learning spaces and communities that exist in forms of residencies, innovation hubs, art collectives, galleries, incubators and more & essentially talk about the learning that they provide, especially when it comes to collective intelligence and collaborative approach to problem-solving.
