We are organizing an event Lume where we are going to build prototypes that will help us prevent wild forest fires caused by a man.

During this event, we are also going to build creative campaigns that will raise awareness about summer fires all over Europe.

The event starts on July 13th, 2021. We are missing 8 participants.

We are bringing together thinkers, creative coders, writers, artists, innovations, crafters, carpenters, professionals, villagers, forestry professionals, and amateurs to think of solutions that will prevent forest fires caused by a man.

And not just that, you will spend the whole week coworking & coliving while building different prototypes and campaigns while using sensors, words & creativity.

We even partnered up with the Fochicamp team that will help us come up with creative solutions while using technology.

A week full of surprises, experiments, and all of this in the 20 inhabitants village in Spain.

Organized by Sende, one of the first rural coworking & coliving spaces in the world, hidden in the Spanish mountains. Space that hosted more than 3000 creatives from 55+ countries in the last 8 years.
