4th - 12th August, 2020
Overview and Goals
Our team will be organizing a nationwide opinion poll to recognize the problems that young people face across the country. The themes we will be focussing on are education, policy, health, development, awareness, and youth engagement. The biggest problems recognized through this poll will be opened up for the young people to solve in our Innovation Challenge.
As part of this challenge, the young people can send their solutions to one of the three most prominent problems that the poll identifies in an easy to fill format. The best innovations from this challenge will be selected and will go on to become a part of the virtual panel discussion between influential leaders, experts, and prominent policymakers on International Youth Day - 12th August.
Our research team will also release policy briefs and working papers on solving these problems through policy in the weeks following the Youth Innovation Challenge.
Understanding the youth: Appropriate online tools will be used to efficiently understand the problems that young people are facing across the country.
Encouraging youth innovations: Enabling young people with an opportunity to solve the problems that they have identified would nudge them to think and determine solutions.
Providing a platform for young innovators: Young people can be encouraged to innovate further by bringing their solutions and innovations to the center stage of discussion and deliberation amongst experts and prominent personalities.
