This year Digital Opportunity Trust held its first Ottawa, Canada-based Impactathon – an accelerator for youth aged 18 to 29 with daring ideas for community transformation.
Over five weeks, young social innovators in Ottawa built big ideas for local community change, and pitched for a chance to win a trip to DOT’s international youth summit in Kenya this October.
Our goal was to choose four of Ottawa’s top daring young social innovators to join us at the summit in Kenya – but their ideas were so compelling, so inspiring, and address such important issues that we couldn’t choose just four. They’re building solutions to challenges like barriers to education, sexual violence, efficient recycling, and more.
I was thrilled to announce, at pitch day, that all seven young people who pitched will be joining us in Kenya in October!
This is where we need your help.
I know we can do this, and I hope you will help.
