SETTLE Lab fair - Domhan Vision UG - September 2017 - Germany

Screenshot 1

The multiplier event ME16 in Germany, the SETTLE Lab fair, took place on 14th September 2017. The fair took place in an alternative co-working space in Kiel, Germany. The co-working space is situated in a cultural building complex, Kiel’s former arts school. There, many social and environmental projects and companies work together and inspire each other. We, therefore, chose the venue: to attract potential final users and share the SETTLE lab among the existing community.
The 20 participants of the fair had very different backgrounds, ages, interests and knowledges (also concerning social entrepreneurship). The aim of the event was to make potential final users experience the platform, to share their experience with the crowd and to stimulate each other. For that purpose, DomhanVision chose practical activities: we gave the participants possibilities to interact and to discuss contents and the structure of the open platform as well as to discuss possible uses of it. The participants only received firstly background on the SETTLE project and working process but the focus was put on the independent discovery of the platform.
The SETTLE Lab fair was a success for the organisers and participants. Everyone enjoyed connecting with other participants and the openly designed agenda. They, furthermore, highly appreciated the output of the platform itself and gave helpful comments on the platform.
