NEMO is opening the stage for projects connected to the conference theme. Posters and video presentations  are very welcome and must be submitted by 13 September 2020.
Presentations, panel discussions and workshops will be focused on the following topics:

  • Community involvement
  • Education and culture
  • Employment creation and skills development
  • Social investment
  • Technology development and access issue

On 18 September, attendees have to choose one of the three inspiring webinars running in parallel:
