An important new feature of the #ENTER21 conference was the “Innovation Challenge” - in this pilot year 13 teams competed with their best ideas on the topic of ICT for Sustainability and eQuality. The Global Ecotourism Network was happy and honoured to join as one of the mentoring partner organizations, helping the team of Locals From Zero, Slovenia, to fine-tune their approach.
We asked ourselves how to create a special mood or experience at an online event. Music came to our mind – so we asked a professional producer to create a sound logo for us. Here are some insights in this work and his ideas about the logo and the playlist you heard in the main hall during the conference.
Have you ever thought about what the sound of travel could be? What could be the sound of travel technology or what could be the sound of our #future? We asked ourselves how could ENTER21 sound like? Here’s our very own playlist to get you in the right mood, recharge your batteries or open your horizon to new ideas.
