The Conference

In the face of growing complexity and shared challenges, humans are innovating about how we come together to explore the solutions. Join us in Barcelona at the Human Networks Festival to learn, contribute and connect.

"New power operates differently, like a current. It is made by many. It is open, participatory, and peer-driven. It uploads, and it distributes. Like water or electricity, it’s most forceful when it surges. The goal with new power is not to hoard it but to channel it." Jeremy Heimans & Henry Timms, Understanding "New Power"



"When many citizens and organisations band together in pursuit of common objectives they generate new kinds of power, agency, and innovation." Indy Johar, Ten Key Ingredients for Collective Impact


Hashtags (so to speak)

Human networks, systems thinking, collaboration, stigmergy, emergence, collective intelligence, purpose-driven entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, communities, networked organisations, decentralised trust, decentralised power, new power, open source, shared governance, open government



No, Don Tapscott is not going to be a speaker at the Fest (or rather, we haven't spoken to him yet), but we thought this TED talk of his sums up our purpose quite well.
