About the Event :
HackaDev’, the National Youth Social Innovation Challenge, is one such initiative which is a platform for young people to be a part of the solutions to development challenges within their communities. Co-financed by the Ministry of Telecommunication, Digital Infrastructure and the United Nations Development Programme, together with the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka and the National Youth Services Council, the challenge recently carried out 9 idea auditions through 9 provincial programmes. Following the idea auditions, the 45 best social innovation ideas have now been selected for 3 five-day residential social innovation camps in 3 locations around the country throughout the month of October, engaging 15 teams each. At the camps, the teams will be taken through a journey of building, refining, mentoring and validating their idea, in a carefully designed programme to support social innovation ideas in the Sri Lankan context. A total of 11 teams will receive seed funding and incubation support.
