PechaKucha

A unique format for innovative topics! In PechaKucha sessions, speakers only have 6 minutes and 40 seconds each, with no more than 20 seconds per slide, to present their topics, forcing them to get straight to the point. A difficult exercise for the speakers, but an entertaining way to learn about public transport topics for the audience!

At the end of this dynamic session, there will be time to ask the speakers questions. PechaKucha comes from the Japanese for “chit-chat”.
