Why does School of Data have a Summer Camp?
We’re now starting the second half of the fellowship and our fellows have been doing an amazing work in their respective countries. Even though the fellowship formally started in April, the real work began after the annual meeting of our network, the School of Data Summercamp. The event was an occasion for the fellows to meet, discuss, receive feedback on their early ideas and plan concretely their future actions.
Each Summercamp is an occasion to get a lot of work done and to take decisions that need a lot of group thinking and debate. This is what happened again this year, as we explained in the article about the future of school of Data. But it is also a great occasion to exchange and have fun together, which helps creates bonds that might not be there otherwise.
All of this is summed up in the testimonies of the fellows and the coordination team members that are shown in this video. Enjoy!
