Ageing and Disabilities (Hybrid)
The Ageing and Disabilities Innovation Bootcamp will follow the Disabilities one in October, shifting the focus to the Asia-Pacific region, where these two global issues affect the populations the most, in a direct way. The Ageing and Disabilities Innovation Bootcamp will deliver education on challenges and methodologies for innovations associated with the elderly and disabled populations.
Hands-on practice will be delivered as part of the SDG Open Hack!, taking place on 28-29 November 2020.
