CSW Arctic Summit

Crowdsourcing Week Summit traveled to the Arctic Circle, March 12 &13 in the remote Swedish Laplands to observe, share and highlight the community applications of crowdsourcing that can have widespread global impact.

In Voullerim, a small town of 800 people, community participation is impactful and inclusive. The village has multiple business entities that include all villagers as stakeholders with profits that are reinvested in the community. The summit was a wonderful way to focus on community building aspects of new digital trends and review best practices for global adoption. The icing on the cake – phenomenal views of the Northern Lights!

Here’s a selection of tweets from the event:
