OPEN JAPAN - DAY 2

The second day at OpenJapan was really great. All nodes and cities were working very efficient and we produced at the end of the day around 70 problem descriptions and ideas. It seems also that OpenJapan was very well published all over the world - we counted around 650 tweets with our hashtag #OpenJapan.

With a lot of energy and a great Red Bull, Pizza and Sushi breakfast we started into the third and final sprint.

THE JAPANESE “AMBASSADOR” - AN INTERVIEW WITH TAKASHI SUGIMOTO

The 72hr work-sprint started in our node in Tokyo where our collaborators at studio-L together with Hiromi Fujii and visitors discussed about the problems that people are facing now in the disaster areas.

Additionally to this local knowledge we had at least one so called “ambassador” in each city node. This ambassador was discussing with the people in the node the feasibility and always watching that the proposals were in-line with Japanese thinking and culture.

In Lisbon we had the pleasure to welcome Takashi Sugimoto. Have a look at his interview.
