Our first journey brought us to the land of golden Buddhist temples and forgotten stories. Myanmar is curled up between the two biggest Asian tigers, China and India. We visited a country at an important crossroad of its democratic future. After decades of authoritarian rule, Myanmar opened its doors to the world and became a western donor darling. In November of 2015, the country organised historically free elections, an unprecedented challenge for both old and new powers.
European participants of the Caravan’s Journal were parachuted in that complex world to meet with local participants. Their different professional practices and cultural backgrounds forced them to adapt and reflect to innovate.
