Building on the series of events of sharing that we have organized and also the feedback that we received, HK+Acumen would like to organize an event that facilitates discussion, allows inputs from participants and at the same time showcases charities/ NGOs locally.

 

To promote design thinking mindset and to create impact (as the name Impacthon suggests), we have invited 2 local charities / NGOs to talk about what they do and the challenges that they face. The common theme that we identified for this event is crowdsourcing – either in terms of monetary support / manpower support. In a cut-throat environment like HK, what can charities / NGOs do? Participants will be divided into two groups, where each group will be tagged to one organization and guided by 1 – 2 facilitators to brainstorm and present their ideas to tackle challenges faced by the organizations.

 

HK+Acumen is honored to have Social Career (a volunteer matching platform) and givo (a news/ social media platform for all things charity) to help execute the ideas from the participants where feasible. We hope to see some post event executions and create real impact to these local charities / NGOs.
