With 85% of young people in the Global South, the future is young!
Young people are the drivers of development, and now more than ever, we must ensure that they are ready to be their own leaders.
Registration for the forum will open on 12 August 2018.
Stay tuned for updates and share the news with your peers. Help us reach out to organisations and individuals that work on ideas to empower young people and create solutions that can be scaled up in the Global South.
This Frugal Innovation Forum, we will rethink and co-create solutions on the theme of ‘Scaling opportunities for youth’, and focus on:
The Frugal Innovation Forum (FIF) is a platform for leaders from the Global South to connect and explore solutions to the world’s toughest challenges. Development practitioners, social entrepreneurs, activists, policy-makers, academics and changemakers collaborate to work towards impact at scale.
This year, we will explore innovations that can be scaled through hybrid partnerships, focusing on the theme of youth.
The Global South has an innate predisposition to what we call jugaad, or ‘frugal innovation’. These innovations allow adaptation and large-scale change with limited resources.
The conference will kickstart with an optional day-long field visit, followed by two days of compelling plenaries on disruptive models and solutions.
What makes FIF unique?
