That was the first

Creators Camp for Global Ideas

The Lungau and its future lie close to people's hearts. The first Creators Camp of Global Ideas was an impressive proof of this. More than 100 participants met on May 31 and June 1 at "Goldader" in Tamsweg to jointly devote themselves to the Lungau region and its development opportunities. 18 Teams created and elaborated a broad spectrum of valuable and thoughtful approaches.

These 100 participants proved their innovative spirit at the first Creators Camp - with great success! High school and university students, employees and self-employed individuals from the region as well as people from outside the Lungau came together to think about the future of the Lungau and its challenges to develop visionary ideas.

With their concepts for traffic, new platforms, and apps for soft tourism and alternative educational concepts to sustainable packaging material the 18 teams left no problem untouched.

The Winner:
Jamination

Traffic jam as a chance for the Lungau - Every year tens of thousands of cars line the motorway section between Zederhaus and Katschberg in transit to Italy & Germany in traffic jams, especially at peak times at the beginning or end of the holiday season. Jamination is the team’s way of transforming these waiting periods into new experiences through innovative technologies that create business opportunities.

Drones build up a WLAN network in the air, promote the Lungau and enable Communication with others during the traffic jam. Jamination offers spontaneous shopping opportunities including drone delivery, information about the Lungau (“What’s going on behind the noise barrier?”) and online entertainment for the whole family. Fun and productivity replace useless and boring waiting time! This solves a global problem.
