It’s just 10 days until the first international edition of the Akvo Track Day. Here Sebastian Wafula talks with Akvo’s Luuk Diphoorn and Mark Charmer, at Akvo’s East Africa hub in Nairobi.
Sebastian Wafula: Imagine I’m a six year old. What is Akvo Track Day?
Luuk Diphoorn: It’s a place where people come together who use cool technology to make their work better, and to share experiences with each other. They all work in the field of trying to make the world a better place, and trying to help improve the lives of people. They have a common purpose but they do it in different ways.
SW: So, for a six year old, Akvo Track Day is a day when people from far distant places come together to share ways that technology – especially gadgets and gizmos – are making their lives just a bit better? While they work hard to make other people’s lives better.
Mark Charmer: Yes! We need to learn to explain it like that too.
