Hactivating Development Aid
Charlotte Obidairo and team from Coxswain Social Investment plus (CSI+) of Tunisia will develop an open digital platform that uses crowdsourcing to solicit or offer solutions to development challenges from young people around the world. They will repurpose digital platforms such as Facebook and YouTube to present inspiring community-based success stories in multimedia format. In a pilot test, they will identify 10-15 authors from developing countries who will make short films of development challenges that they face, which will be outsourced to grade 7 students in 100 participating schools across Europe, the U.S., and Asia. They will evaluate the impact of the work to inform revisions and promote its expansion on a global scale.
