Vicy is an Anthropologist, Organizational & Agile Consultant, and on the Board of Directors of GIG the Global Innovation Gathering, a vibrant, diverse community of innovation hubs, maker spaces, hacker spaces and other grassroot innovation initiatives as well as individual innovators, makers, technologists and change-makers.GIG is pursuing a new vision for global cooperation based on equality, openness and sharing.
She is also a member of the AfricaHackTrip crew. This group of European developers and designers went on a journey to East Africa to meet, work, play and build connections with their counterparts. In 5 weeks, they visited 4 countries where they hosted barcamps and hackathons in cooperation with the different tech hubs and explored the local tech scenes, often focussing on women in tech and open knowledge sharing.
After re:publica, Vicy will start a trip with her #labmobil to rural areas in Europe and Africa where there are no innovation spaces (yet), but many innovative minds and thus new friends to be met.
