The 2021 edition will feature six stages divided into various themes such as the labor market and economy; clean energy and the environment; health and science; entertainment and digital culture; and education and gov tech. The second digital edition of Campus Party also aims to encourage engagement among participants, to enable the exercise of digital citizenship and foster the exchange of knowledge and experiences in the sectors of entrepreneurship, science and innovation.
“The second edition of Campus Party Digital Edition, in addition to the metaverse element, gives us the opportunity to be increasingly multi-platform for the technology and disruption communities within the entire Campus Party ecosystem. Our inclusion DNA remains vibrant and intense. We will do this through minorities focused on games and other aspects of developers, entrepreneurship, science, data, creativity and many other themes”, explains Tonico Novaes, CEO of Campus Party.
