🌐 Have you heard of PLACE Network?
This weekend we were excited that the latest PLACE Lab was organized in Paris @halles_civiques! PLACE Network is a project led by a European collective that aims to show how #migration is a source of #innovation for host societies. Their project has been pre-selected through the Techfugees Global Challenges. The 25 best projects, announced on October 4th, will be pitched on stage at the Techfugees Global Summit on October 26th, at Station F.
Do you know about @halles_civiques in Paris? Surrounded by the beautiful gardens of the Parc de Belleville, this space encourages public innovation, democracy and citizen participation AND the next PLACE Lab is taking place right here! #innovatorsdonthaveborders pic.twitter.com/49I8S2bpUm
