Crowdsourcing Week for the first time in Sweden!


Welcome to the Crowdsourcing Week Summit Arctic Circle in Vuollerim, March 12th-13th 2015

Crowdsourcing Week (CSW) is the largest global community on crowdsourcing with the mission to make technical know-how on the new crowd economy accessible to all – corporates, governments, non-profits and innovators. CSW is a Singapore/New York-based organization.

The founder of CSW Epi Ludvik Nekaj say:
“We are thrilled to bring the CSW Arctic Circle Summit to the Lapland Vuollerim in Sweden – where the community is at the foundation of a prosperous society. During the summit we all will learn the best practices on cooperation from a close-knit, local economy while sharing the latest technological trends in digital currency and open innovation that will take crowd participation to new levels. 

As a preview to our 3rd annual global conference in Singapore in April  CSW Summits in Arctic Circle, Venice, Manila and Jakarta will highlight large scale impacts of crowd economy on the people & economy in 2015 and beyond.”

We, at Lapland Vuollerim Welcomes You, are so happy to have been chosen to run one of their summits as a co-hosting partner, for the first time ever in Sweden, and then in Vuollerim!

Innovation and development of business and society

The summit agenda and topics have been planned to demonstrate the essence of crowdsourcing and the new doors it opens to develop businesses and democracy.

Forum For Social Innovation Sweden is a platform for academia, industry, government and non-profit organizations in Sweden who want to take part in the development of the fields of social innovation and social entrepreneurship. They also are a supporting partner of the summit. Here you find their blogpost about this:
