1 day before the start of the first Hack4SocialChange in Belarus. This social Hackathon is organized by UNDP Belarus and I am very happy to be part of the organization of this event. The aim of this social Hackathon is to create a platform for social innovators where they can create a prototype (does not have to be technical) focusing on three prior identified spheres: Health, Environment and employment of people with disabilities. For each sphere we selected 3 teams of social innovators that will work on their ideas/projects and eventually present their build prototype the next day during the final. The ideas vary from building a mobile application for a 15 minutes interactive course on HIV to the development of a robot for people with disabilities.
Edgeryders, a global network for social innovators to find and support each other’s work, is also going to be active during the Hack4SocialChange. Not only by following the teams closely but also we continue with the building of the collaborative map on social innovators in Belarus. This is a great chance for Edgeryders to act since many social innovators will gather in one place.
