We are developing a network of GloNet champions to visit the international cities and participate in the remote events.
The aim is to create a deeper dialogue between the cities, and that they will seed collaborations relevant to their own work. It is these people, and this story, that is the most compelling part of GloNet.
Each will participate in the satellite events and run a local Serendipity City Challenge workshop.
Remote connections are strengthened by prior face-to-face contact. Having people in the international cities during GloNet is expected to enhance the interaction and dialogue.*
*GloNet is therefore not strictly a "no fly" event, although we do hope it will lead to an overall decrease in air miles, which was its original inspiration.
