Education Hackathon 23-24 June 2018 - Rome (Italy)
48 hours to envision and develop ideas to disrupt the world of Education and give birth to an international ecosystem about the topic.
How it works
SUBSCRIBE TO THE HACKATHON
The Hackathon is an event in which you can compete and cooperate with other teams towards a shared goal: hacking traditional education systems!
Innolympics Education Hackathon is for teams of people aged between 18 and 35.
Only 10 teams will be admitted to the live Hackathon in Rome, on 23rd and 24th June.
At the Hackathon you will meet valuable people and mentors and will also gain credits to be spent on the realisation of your idea during the months following the event.
PARTICIPATE IN THE DISCUSSIONS
Innolympics Education Hackathon is not only for teams; it’s an ecosystem enabler we are offering to the world.
That’s why whoever is interested in evolving the world of Education should be there.
During the two days, if you are not part of a team, we will provide you with a space to give voice to your energy, experiences and ideas.
You will meet people and organisations interested in raising the bar and give birth to a living ecosystem about Education.
WHY AN EDUCATION HACKATHON?
Every few hundred years in Western history, there occurs a sharp transformation…
And the people born then cannot even imagine the world in which their own parents were born. We are living through just such a transformation.
– Peter Drucker –
Organisations, economies, technologies, even the politics are changing faster and faster.
Education can’t stay behind.
That’s why we need new ideas in order to help humankind to cope with the growing complexity of these days and only younger generations can make this happen.
WHY STARTING FROM EDUCATION?
Today we live in a world where information is easily accessible.
The problem is to select and use this knowledge properly, because the skills you need in life and work are changing rapidly.
Each of us therefore needs a personal and professional growth that is integrated, continuous and truly useful.
Reacquiring confidence in the future is not something that will come from traditional, standardized and static education and training systems.
BEYOND A EDUCATION HACKATHON
This Hackathon we are offering to the ecosystem of education is just the tip of the iceberg.
In fact, Hackathon is the pilot of a bigger idea called Innolympics.
In the same vein many other players, actively evolving the way work is conceived and practiced, will gather at the end of March 2018 for a Work Revolution Party called Ohana Meetup.
We are also developing a way to track the exchange of value within our ecosystems, no more based on scarcity of resources like money or gold, but based on the richness of possibilities produced by the exchange of ideas, care and trust.
Last but not least, in the next weeks we are going to open a digital space in which whoever is interested in joining is constantly involved in valuable flows of conversations.
That’s why this Hackathon represents an important opportunity to play a role in this huge revolution from its very first steps.
