In April Daniel Gaffner, Nicklas Karlsson, Sofie Marie Ottsen Hansen and Elisabet Nilsson from K3 participated in the Cumulus Paris 2018 conference. The conference topic was “To get there Together” (say it quick with a French accent and see what happens). The conference took place at the four Parisian Schools of Art and Design, Boulle, Duperré, Estienne, and Ensaama. Many of the paper presentations this year had an emphasis on design education, and on various teaching practices, pedagogical tools and models. In a true French spirit, the conference was also spiced up with some student demonstrations which blocked out the venue for the conference opening, and a couple of strikes.

Social Innovation Summit brings together entrepreneurs, change agents, innovators, policy makers, investors and financiers to jointly explore, develop and promote social innovation. The conference will take place in Malmö October 25-26.
