EMPATHEAST gathers “realistic dreamers” from around the world and the region, challenges and stimulates the collective creativeness with meetings, interactive formats, lectures, discussions, installations, games and performances. All of that is there to demonstrates how we call be part from a shared vision, nourished by empathy for real.

This year we play with the topic “Community-led innovations” and the bright palette of human-centered solutions: self-organized and independent civil systems and communities, ethical finance for positive social impact, food independence, exchange of knowledge between generations, proactive participation in the development of the urban environment.
