As an OpenVillage fellow you will learn and collaborate with your peers on inspiring open source projects around the world.
Work with an international network to develop your own project and make it more sustainable through open knowledge and technologies. People like Hegazy who is building a transport map for the chaotic public transit in Cairo. You can collaborate with Winnie in using open science to make insulin cheaper and more accessible. You can learn from the creative solutions Matthias has to come up with to get coffee beans from Nepali farmers to the European market in a way that ensures they get most of the profit. And how others are bringing public cinema screenings to the Himalayas. And much more!
