The goal was to create awareness about the importance of preserving native languages while building technology infrastructure. There are 47 spoken languages in Peru at risk of disappearing. Technology can be used to help preserve this cultural identity.
We partnered with the Minister of Culture of Peru, and the founder of the Roberto Carcelen Foundation (Roberto himself) to host an event with 75 attendees including local students. Both were the main presenters at our GDW 2015 event on October 16th.
