Innovation Conference Wraps Up in Colombia

CARTAGENA, Colombia – The 3rd Ibero-American Citizens Innovation Laboratory has ended in Cartagena, Colombia, where participants unveiled 11 projects aimed at helping vulnerable communities.

Ibero-American Secretary-General Rebeca Grynspan, Cartagena Mayor Manuel Vicente Duque and Culture Ministry official Moises Medrano participated in Saturday’s closing event, where the projects were presented.

The innovation conference drew 120 participants, who spent 15 days developing solutions and proposals for helping people facing barriers in society due to disabilities or discrimination.

The event, organized by the Ibero-American Secretariat with the support of the Colombian Culture Ministry, was the first event tied to the 25th Ibero-American Summit, which will be held Oct. 28-29 in Cartagena.

The 11 projects range from creating protocols for managing natural disasters to preserving knowledge passed down by ancestors.

The Ibero-American Citizens Innovation Laboratory “is made by people for people,” Grynspan said in her closing address.

The previous conferences were held in Veracruz, Mexico, in 2014 and Rio de Janeiro in 2015.

The projects presented at the conference “will help many, many people” because they offer “the possibility of using technology to improve the lives of communities,” Grynspan said.
