The SDG Innovation Challenge 2022 is now open. The SDG16 Innovation Challenge is an initiative to find creative solutions to SDG 16 on Justice.
The competition helps young men and women between the ages of 15 and 35 to develop ideas, develop skills, and exchange ideas with others who work to strengthen accountability, the rule of law, and access to justice for Nigerians.
The SDG Innovation Challenge Program is organized by the Nigeria Liability Lab and the Canadian Embassy. The ODD16 Innovation Contest helps young people to design solutions for participation, justice, and accountability in Nigeria.
Each focus group focuses on a specific problem:
- How can we ensure that it involves the most vulnerable people in Nigeria in the development process?
- How can we rethink the judiciary to serve the poor?
- How can citizens’ feedback mechanisms be revised to improve service delivery?
- How can young people strengthen the accountability of companies and governments?
- How can we increase women’s participation in governance?
- How can we ensure that everyone takes part in discussions about the future of Nigeria?
- How can we support women’s votes in the rule of law?
They will invite the 40 best ideas to a three-day workshop in Abuja or Lagos to refine their concepts. The highlight of the campaign will be a pitch competition in front of a jury comprising two winning ideas.
