For 3 weeks the #CheerForPeaceEXPO happened at IBQP, the iCities node of Curitba, Brazil. During the first 2 weeks we created a dynamic side to the expo, building on the “windows of the future” section that was created, exploring problems and solutions to the things we investigated over the previous few months. What followed was a series of discussions with many people in many parts of the world, in different languages. The discussions happened both in our expo space / studio and also over skype. We broadcast the discussions live over the net TV channel we created on Bambuser. Later all the videos were uploaded to our CheerForPeace youtube channel and now here are all the videos together. The broadcast recordings happened over 9 days, by the end of day 7 we hit 2oo views on our channel, by the end of friday 15th, day 10 we were over 600.
