Map and Directions

The IMPACTHON is a 2-day hackathon organised by the Lien Centre for Social Innovation that brings together social innovators, changemakers, thought leaders and youths from various backgrounds to tackle real-world issues and societal challenges.

The theme for this IMPACTHON is “Youth E3: Engagement, Education, Empowerment” where we aim to tackle youth-centric concerns surrounding:

  • Strengthening youth engagement by building resilience in their communities;
  • Developing youth ownership and leadership through capacity-building programmes and initiatives;
  • Providing opportunities for youths, as change agents, to impact their own lives and the lives of others in their communities.


What To Expect

You will have the opportunity to hear from youth organisations about their initiatives and challenges, and work together in teams to define a problem statement. Each team will then ideate, prototype and present your solutions to a panel of judges at the end of the IMPACTHON. Along the way, there will be experienced mentors to guide you along and provide feedback.


Who Should Attend

  • People with a passion to #DoGood and solve real-world problems
  • Social service organisations tackling issues specific to youth
  • Community groups, startups and youth-centric social enterprises
