  • What is a SenseCamp?

    A SenseCamp is a 2-day “unconference” event dedicated to social innovation, gathering 100-150 participants from all over Europe around inspiring speakers, creativity workshops, entrepreneurs pitches and much more.


    We set the agenda in the morning.

    To host a session, anybody can pitch a topic to the crowd. Sessions are generally participatory in nature, typically without powerpoint. SenseCampers vote with their feet and leave sessions they do not want to participate in. The format blurs traditional notions of speakers and listeners and creates a highly interactive experience of shared learning and development.

    This is a small taste of what's to come

  • Education

    In MakeSense we believe that social entrepreneurship can be helpful to mobilize social causes. In this second edition of SenseCamp Madrid we aim at promoting social entrepreneurship around Education.


    The event is dedicated to social innovators, experts, teachers and students alike. We invite them to interact and share their needs, ideas and resources, in order to create new opportunities for them to debate, experiment and innovate continuously. In doing so, we are trying to imagine the future of education and find solutions to current challenges in the education system.


    We decided to focus on 4 main topics around Education:

    Personal transformation

    Education is a journey to understand yourself and what are you passionate about

    Egalitarian Education

    Education is a right and anyone has to have access to it without discrimination of any kind

    Alternative Education

    The educational system is evolving and changing the way it is transmitted to be more effective


    The digitalization is transforming the educational sector making it open and free for everyone

  • Agenda 

    The SenseCamp is an occasion to gather inspiring people from all over the world, share experiences, debate and stimulate the development of social initiatives.
