With preparations complete, the opening session started. Jono walked attendees through the background, goals, and format of the summit.
Like other years, the summit format was to be conducted in an "unconference" style. Attendees were asked to consider hosting a session and to indicate their proposed session on a session card. Then, one by one, the proposals were pitched to the audience to get people excited about all the lively discussions ahead.
Proposals complete, the remaining task was to get them on the day's schedule. Here it is!
Day 1 totally designed by community leaders from around the world - great minds from as far away as Kenya and New Zealand.
