    “Shape Your Future” Sector 3.0 Festival – how technologies can change an organization

    Almost 650 participants, including more than 70 speakers – technology experts from Poland and other countries. Workshops, seminars, an international debate, as well as coding zone for children, fairs where several dozen companies offered their products, joint networking, a live report watched by 100,000 Internet users and 1st place on Twitter – that is how one can sum up Sector 3.0 Festival, the biggest in Poland event presenting application of new technologies for social activity.

    The Festival took place in Warsaw on 30 and 31 May and was participated by representatives of non-profit organizations, business, start-ups, public administration, science and media. On the first day the venue of meetings was Copernicus Science Center and on the second day the workshops were held at the offices of 10 supporting institutions and companies.

    “Technological innovations made it possible for people to travel into Space. It’s an excellent proof that creativity of people can go beyond the borders of our capabilities, that we can better ourselves, ” – said Col. George Zamka, NASA astronaut and the main guest of this-year Festival, during the opening presentation.

    Similar was the sense of the address given by Prof. Peter Gloor from Massachusetts Institute of Technology at the opening ceremony: “Joining hands by us taken as one species, “hive” of people supported by technologies, can make the world around us better. I draw many inspirations from watching bees – the way they solve problems working together – and I think that many schemes of their behavior can be applied to improve us as humans, “ he explained.

    During the main seminar part we could listen to lectures given by Polish and foreign experts in new technologies and their application by non-profit organizations. Actor Bartłomiej Topa and Synapsis Foundation instructed how a good viral campaign should be prepared. Onet.pl Program Director Bartosz Węglarczyk advised how to build the organization’s credibility at the era of “fake news”. Artur Kurasiński, a blogger and start-upper, in cooperation with Greenpeace Foundation prepared a seminar on “How to use virtual reality to raise funds for activities, while Chelsea Barabas from MIT Media Lab (USA) instructed on “How to keep job? Education at the era of robotization”.

    The debates and workshops were crowned by a debate on global technological changes, moderated by Dr. Michał Boni, member of the European Parliament. Other members of that debate, that is Iva Walterova (Telecentre Europe), Prof. Junseok Hwang (Seoul National University), Kineret Karin (TechForGood), Michał Dżoga (Intel) and Prof. Peter Gloor (MIT) agreed that if we want to take the opportunity which new technologies offer, we need to change our thinking and acknowledge that new technologies can support us in most areas of our lives.

    Also during the Festiva,l the Polish-American Freedom Foundation awarded its prize of PLN 40,000. The prize was presented to the Empowering Children Foundation for its technological efforts to create secure space for children in the Internet, as well as for organization of Digital Youth Forum conference, where young people share experiences in creative use of the Internet for their activities.

    A great attraction was the coding zone for children, held for the first time. “Children could learn how to program Dash and Dot robots, the basics of programming with the ScottieGo game, and how to build a simple electric system. After the workshop they were visited by astronaut Col. George Zamka, who shared with them his impressions from his spaceflight,” informed Festival Director Dawid Szarański.

    On the second day, the participants took place in 10 specialistic workshops, which were held in Warsaw offices of Intel, Microsoft, Cisco and Ericsson, as well as in the Ministry for Digitalization and Warsaw School of Economy.

    Sector 3.0 is not only the name of a conference. It is also the name of the Polish-American Freedom Foundation program aimed at facilitating use of new technologies for social activity by non-profit organizations. It helps them act more effectively, reach more people with their offer and inspire others with their experiences in the area of new technologies. The Sector 3.0 program is managed by the Information Society Development Foundation. From 2011 to 2017 there were seven rounds of the Sector 3.0, attended by a total of over 3,300 participants.
