Lift France Conference 2009

Έναρξη 09:00 - Λήξη 17:00
Palais du Pharo

Crises are the foresigns of mutations. You can choose to weather this one out by postponing future plans, or you can choose to take advantage of it by embracing change. Throughout the world, entrepreneurs, researchers, artists, designers, activists, many are inventing radically new ways to innovate, design, produce, trade, exchange and manage.

 They intend to change the world; In fact, they have already set out to change it. Technology is either their tool, or the leverage that they use to look at situations, problems and opportunities under a new angle.

On June 18,19 and 20, they will be at Lift to talk about the Hands-On Future :

·         Changing Things: Towards objects that are not just "smart" and connected, but also customizable, hackable, transformable, fully recyclable… Towards decentralized and multipurpose manufacturing, or even home fabrication…

·         Changing Innovation: Towards continuous and networked innovation, emerging from users as well as entrepreneurs, from researchers as well as activists…

·         Changing the Planet: Towards a "green design" that reconnects global environmental challenges with growth, but also with human desire, pleasure, beauty and fun…

More than 20 speakers from all over the world will be at Lift : Usman Haque (Pachube), Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino (, Euan Semple (Social computing for the business world), John Thackara (Doors of Perception), Edith Ackermann (MIT), Dennis Pamlin (WWF), Jean-Michel Cornu (Fing), Rob van Kranenburg (Waag Society), Catherine Fieschi (Counterpoint), Michael Shiloh (MakingThings/OpenMoko), Bruce Sterling...[+]
