Results of the project

Several EU policy initiatives underline that the social inclusion of young people depends on their access to ICT and on them acquiring the necessary digital and transversal competences to participate in modern society. To address these challenges, the #hackAD “Social Hackademy” project aims at fostering digital skills and competences of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds through the implementation of collaborative educational activities based on the Social Hackademy co-creation methodology.

#hackAD is based on the Social Hackathon Umbria (#SHU) methodology, a good practice being implemented in Italy. The project activates multi-disciplinary teams that work collaboratively across different sectors to maximise the chances that underprivileged young people become interested in socially responsible scientific and technological careers (actors from formal and non-formal education sector, NGOs, CSOs, libraries, social enterprises).
