Social Impact Summit 2016

Social Impact Summit 2016: The aim of the summit was to provide youth with the basic tools to grow their social impact idea into a project. Our participants came from diverse backgrounds and communities (students, young professionals, volunteers, varied educational experiences). Throughout the day, participants had worshops with mentors from various fields. The workshops included Technology for Social Good, Social Impact on a Budget, and Mental Health. Participants were encouraged to design a social impact project. Some of our participants had the chance to pitch their social impact idea to our panel of mentors, and the winner received a financial reward, and support from Istanbul&I to develop their idea further.  Check out our recent feature in Yabangee.
