The theme of our first festival is ‘Synergy’!
We will come together with a different theme each time we meet with the Digital Festivals that we will organize as the Habitat Association Digital Transformation Program.
Synergy: The meaning of the word is actually quite compatible with a few concise words. In this context, the proverb “What does one hand have, both hands have a voice” actually characterizes the underlying situation of synergy.
Synergy is also explained as a harmonious and common force that has been created to achieve the same result. It is a summary of the synergy concept that different people make a joint effort towards the same goal. The concept of “creating synergies” occurs when people’s harmonious work is linked to a good result.
We came together to create synergy, we had fun and learned with Digital Festival!
