Increasing concern for sustainability has focused attention of academics, practitioners, corporate, social and public policy leaders towards extremely affordable frugal products and services. A quarter century of exploration by Honey Bee Network has generated several models of engagement with creative and innovative communities and individuals in different domains. The first ICCIG was held in January 1997 leading to establishment of Grassroots Innovation Augmentation Network [GIAN] and later National Innovation Foundation [NIF]. The second ICCIG was held in China and India in December 2012 to connect creative pursuits around the world. The third ICCIG aims at pooling insights from research, policy and practices in education, technology, institutions, culture, conservation and governance.
The conference welcomes the presentation in different formats including performances, exhibitions, posters and research papers. Community representatives are specially invited to connect with each other and help the formal sector to understand and appreciate their knowledge systems.
