Sailboats, social media and sensors in focus when the Interactive Institute visits Almedalen

1 July, 2011 - 11:07

In what ways can we promote participation and involvement in solving today's grand challenges through new technology and social media? The Interactive Institute will provide examples of this in Almedalen with Ocean Search, a new project linking narrative, social media, creative visualization and advanced sensor technology. By sensor equipping ordinary sailboats, all the thousands of people that sail have an opportunity to be part of creating the story of what is happening with our oceans.
