UP Singapore is excited to announce Active Ageing Hackathon, being held from 16-18 August, in partnership with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC).
Active Ageing is an open innovation forum for people of all ages to come together to co-create solutions to help our seniors stay healthy, active and independent as they age. The main focus of the hackathon will be to create an environment for seniors in which they can have active social lives, vocational opportunities and enjoy high standards of health & well-being.
Participants will have access to data, technology and devices in order to create mobile, web or social prototypes that:
reduce social barriers between generations.
harness their knowledge and experience so that seniors can get employed and become self-sufficient.
foster lifestyle habits that can help them manage their health better.
After the Active Ageing Hackathon, eligible teams may be potentially granted up to $50,000 by NVPC through its Jump Start Fund.
