Young SDG Innovators Programme: Solutions Development

High Impact Experimentation!

Building on the key takeaways of the two previously-held Young SDG Innovators Programme (YSIP) Camps focused on ideation, defining and refining challenges, the third YSIP Camp took place on May 21st and 22nd under the name “Solutions Development”.

Facilitated by our implementation partners, Hany Rizk; Founder of No BS Innovation Studio, and Nadim Choucair; Founder of the 2030 Cabinet, the first day of this camp emphasized on the fundamentals of concept generation through which the innovators indulged a virtual challenge lab, where they proactively collaborated with their mentors and champions on generating tangible concepts by applying disruptive technologies and embedding sustainable business models into their challenges.

The first day was a deep dive on how disruptive technologies can elevate impact on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the pave the way for the innovators to transform their potential business solutions into new levels of real business innovation. Accordingly, innovators were provided with real life examples of leading companies that utilized on disruptive technologies as a strategic force to amplify impact on the SDGs delivery.

On day 2, the facilitators have drilled deeper into the different kinds of prototyping techniques that can be adopted during the design thinking methodology through which the innovators acquired an in-depth knowledge on how to identify a persona’s point of view, explore different alternatives through the process of ideation and successfully prototype a business solution.

Our innovators left the camp with the spirit that great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, at any time … they just need effective brainstorming and a well framed prototype aimed at transforming a big idea into a real tangible business solution!
