HOPE 2020 (2020): "How Asian Makers Unite During COVID-19 (Practices From Japan, Malaysia, and China)" (Download)
Wednesday, July 29, 2020: 2100. The maker community has always been a supportive and safe harbor when something unexpected happens, like COVID-19. The community in Japan, Malaysia, and China have done many things to unite and stay strong mentally, also creating many projects of social value to give back to the society.
In this session you will hear some interesting projects of social value built by the community; learn about maker culture in Japan, Malaysia, and China; and hear different perspectives about "the new normal" maker lifestyle after COVID-19.
