DEVELOP YOUR CREATIVE DIGITAL SKILLS AND CONTRIBUTE TO IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The social hackademy is a service-learning initiative in which young people learn digital skills in order to co-design products and solutions useful for achieving social objectives with the collaboration of associations, organizations and informal groups of citizens operating in the field of at least one of the sustainable development goals of the UN Agenda 2030.
Each student will be able to follow one of the workshops for the development of digital skills proposed by the Social Hackademy: Web Design, Graphic and Visual Design, Digital Video. All participants in the training courses will participate in the annual event organized for the co-creation of digital solutions to social challenges.
LEARNING BY HACKING
Not didactics, but education of young people through the offer of a space where you can practice experiences that allow you to generate innovative ideas to be applied in everyday life, to finally invent new processes and expand our world.
Creating addiction to connective creative thinking and disruptive innovation that allow the individual to elaborate generative visions of an unimaginable future before the advent of digital technologies.
CREATIVE DIGITAL SKILLS
Participants will learn how to contribute to the development of a creative digital project, by integrating web-based, visual and video contents in a creative way.
Each team is composed of “young hackers”, a team manager and representative of the local civil society organizations that have proposed a solution to one of the challenges proposed by the social hackademy.
All digital solutions developed during the hackathon will contribute to the achievement of at least one of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN AGENDA 2030. The participants will have the chance to meet with experts and practitioners in social, cultural and environmental areas of cooperation.
