After quite a long trip, including cancelled flight and a couple of stopovers in random places, I have finally arrived in Kathmandu.
I am meeting the other members of INNOCO Team, composed of Yunsun, who I had the pleasure to meet in Montreal last summer and offered me the job, Joanne and Michael I previously met on Skype and Rob, I hadn’t got the chance to meet as of yet. I also get introduced to the former Bootcamp participants today, fully active members of the NYC (Nepal Youth Cluster). The amount of work these people are putting in all together to bring positive change is truly beautiful and inspiring. Despite being younger than me, the members of the cluster are totally professionals and up to the task of welcoming new promising members in their group of social innovators.
My role during the pre-Bootcamp, Bootcamp and post-Bootcamp is fairly simple. I may not be «The one who watches», aka Michael behind his camera (and sometimes in front of it, when he shoots with the amazing 360º camera), I get to be the Coyote.
Dear Lord, I hear you say. What kind of job is that?
The one you actually get to sit in a corner, listening and seeing everything, but most importantly, drawing everything. And this second INNOCO Bootcamp will sure bring its lot of stories and adventures, as well as beautiful shared moments, full of good energies and emotions. Rest assured I will do my best to faithfully illustrate them for you!
But let’s go back to our business.
Despite all of us being exhausted, we shared a wonderful Nepali dinner before heading straight to bed.
Tuesday started beautifully as we had the pleasure to have Mahabir Pun joining us over in order to prepare his opening speech for the bootcamp.
Finally, after 4 days of intensive pre-Bootcamp work, everything is ready to welcome our new participants!
Day 1 has finally arrived! Stay tuned!
