Upcoming IT event in Lagos, Nigeria

hackathon

Description

Enough is Enough, Co-Creation Hub, BudgIT & Paradigm Initiative Nigeria cordially invite you to join us at the Office Of The Citizen Hackathon 2.0

Office Of The Citizen is an idea that places citizens at the heart of governance as we believe that the ‘Office of the Citizen’ is the highest office in the country – superior to any government office as citizens have the power to determine the direction of governance.

The theme of the Office Of The Citizen Hackathon 2.0 is “Not Everytime Rant; Sometimes ACT!”

At Office Of The Citizen Hackathon 2.0, mixed teams of developers, designers, governance practitioners and active citizens will collaborate to build prototypes of technology platforms/apps where active citizens can engage to provide solutions to key trending issues in their locality.

The hackathon will be preceded by a Kick-Off Workshop on Friday 24th of February, 2017 where a mixed panel will set context around the opportunities for citizens to engage in proferring solutions to local issues. Speakers at the kick-off workshop will include:

1.  Aisha Yesufu (Chairperson of the Strategic Team #BringBackOurGirls movement)
2. Jude Feranmi (National Youth Caucus Leader KOWA Party)
3. Adeolu Ogunbanjo (President National Association of Telecom Subscribers NATCOMS)
4. Lanre Suraju (Chairman, Civil Society Network Against Corruption -CSNAC)

Following the kick-off workshops, teams will form to tackle the design challenge. The teams will actively engage from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon

On Sunday 26th of February, the prototypes will be presented in a public show-and-tell event and the winning solutions will be selected. The teams behind the winning solutions will be funded to complete development & launch of their solution.
