Ideate for India- Creative Solutions using Technology” - National challenge for youth launched by Meity

The Minister for Electronics & IT, Law & Justice, Ravi Shankar Prasad, launched a National Challenge for Youths, “Ideate for India – Creative Solutions using Technology”, at New Delhi on 7 Dec.

The aim of this National Challenge is to give school students across the country a platform and opportunity to become solution creators for the problems they see around them and their communities.

“Ideate for India” will empower and enable these students to transition from being ‘users’ of technology to become ‘creators’ of new indigenous technologies to solve local problems in their community by re-imagining solutions to work out critical local issues.

The Challenge

The National Challenge is open to students of classes 6 – 12 all across the country – all 29 States and 7 Union Territories and aims to reach out to at least 1 million youth over the next 3 months.

There are 11 core theme areas on which students can share their ideas- healthcare services, education services, digital services, environment, women safety, traffic, infrastructure, agriculture, social welfare, disability and tourism. The Challenge requires students to access online videos and understand how to identify problems and share a 90 second video explaining the problem and their proposed solution.

From the submitted ideas in the form of videos, around 360 students (10 students per State & UT) will be selected by a panel of experts to attend 5 regional Boot Camps organized in North, South, East, West and North Eastern regions of the country ( 1 in each region).
