Meet the Idea Camp 2017 Idea Feeders
Co-produced by the European Cultural Foundation, Platoniq and the City of Madrid, the 2017 Idea Camp brings together 50 Idea Makers from 24 countries across Europe, as well as a wide range of participants, including Idea Feeders, Facilitators, Digital storytellers, and local organisations and collectives. Throughout this series of Featured People focusing on the Idea Camp 2017, we present you the work of these passionate professionals, actively engaged in opening up ways of fostering a society with greater equality. We start with the Idea Feeders,
professionals interested in collective learning, who have been invited to share their expertise and knowledge around this year's theme "Moving Communities". They will support the Idea Makers throughout the three-day programme by offering feedback on their ideas.
