Earth is calling – please RESPOND. I have just attended the Respond-festival (#respondfestival) arranged by IDA (Ingeniørforeningen) – a three-day festival/conference dedicated at discussing and showing how technology can help to overcome some of the future challenges of the earth (climate changes, loss of biodiversity, food production and more). It was truly amazing and I felt much more positive after seeing that many problems actually CAN be solved if we just use our creative, intellectual and cooperative skills. Looking forward to next year! And… there was free ice cream!
