All Opening Plenaries will be held from 9-10am on Monday and Tuesday at Hall of The Americas and on Wednesday at Gensler, all in Washington, DC. All Sessions will occur in 3 tracks, over three days in three publilc libraries, starting at 11:00am and running until 5pm each day. Evening Events will run from 6-9pm and will occur at Pillsbury Law on November 13th, WeWork Whitehouse on November 14th and Alley powered by Verizon on November 15th.



THE FESTIVALS WILL OFFER PROGRAMMING IN 3 TRACKS:

1. PARTICIPATORY METHODOLOGIES: How do we improve community engagement in project and technology development? From design thinking to strategies for community art projects or urban development. We are eager to learn from one another on the best way to build with, and not for.

2. ACTIVE PROJECTS: What technologies and projects are currently being used? What is their impact? Demos of existing projects to increase the knowledge of these public good efforts.

3. IMPACT AND SCALE: How do we start to collect common indicators so that we can understand how to discuss impact and, eventually, scale? We all need better ways to understand our individual impact and to understand how we can aggregate our impact to describe change from public good efforts across the globe.
