Organised byThe Humanitarian Innovation Project, Refugee Studies Centre, Oxford Department of International Development

Following the success of the inaugural Humanitarian Innovation Conference,
the Humanitarian Innovation Project announces that #HIP2015 [1] will again
take place in Oxford in July 2015. The 2015 conference theme is
‘facilitating innovation’. As interest and dialogue around humanitarian
innovation continues to expand, conference participants are invited to
explore the challenges of creating an enabling environment for humanitarian
innovation.
 
In the lead up to the World Humanitarian Summit, a key focus of the
conference will explore how we enable innovation by and for affected
communities. What does it mean to take a human-centred approach seriously,
and to engage in co-creation with affected populations? It will also seek to
examine what facilitation means across the wider humanitarian ecosystem, and
how we can better convene the collective talents of people within and across
traditional and non-traditional humanitarian actors.

"One of the most effective ways to reduce poverty is to encourage
entrepreneurship." (World Bank Report) SIMAMA RANTA loosely translates into
Strengthening the South African economy through youth entrepreneurship. The
approach of the event is to focus South African secondary school's efforts on
the delivery of in-school entrepreneurship education based upon 11 principles
of good practice, throughout the year. The purpose of the exercise is to
enable learners to become job creators rather than job seekers through
entrepreneurship. Three schools from each of 9 provinces are being selected
as models of good practice together with a national winner. Simama Ranta
started in 2010 and is now in its 8th year.

The opportunities that social media can offers to  small and media size
businesses in developing countries are enormous. Africa presently has 167m
Internet users (15% penetration), this is already a huge number. However,
with an overall low penetration rate of 11%, the continent needs to take
advantage of this social media platforms especially for those young
businesses wishing to make a global presence and find diverse markets for the
products (Read more here [1]).

Knowledge for Development without Borders (KFDWB) is a non-governmental
organization (NGO) established in 2014 and based in Vienna, Austria. Our
efforts to support sustainable development progress are broad and diverse,
but a core element of all our efforts is to work closely with civil society,
international development agencies, universities, and local communities to
meet urgent local needs as well as to empower local citizens to know,
understand, secure and enforce their roles, responsibilities, and engagements
for the success of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) - in order to
create a better world – a world of economic and social justice.

The mission of Knowledge for Development without Borders is to share relevant
knowledge in order to build skills needed to alleviate development issues at
a community level. We motivate people on the ground to express their
individual needs and the needs of their communities, and to get actively
involved in developing solutions. We raise awareness on local development
issues and we identify the best development practices specific to each
community and their locality in an effort to resolve these issues once and
for all.

We have created the Development Aid Support Mechanism, which consists of a
new developed online StayConnecteD4Dev [2] cloud platform in
cooperation with IBM Austria GmbH, and offline Field Development Support
[3]in order to empower our members, our active volunteers and local
communities, help them to establish their own initiatives to engage in
education, health, public awareness campaigns, and government programs.

StayConnecteD4Dev [4]: Community Learning Center that already brings together
over 1000 civil society organizations, individuals and activists from around
the world is a cloud-based solution to promote education, Peace, measurement
of impacts, advocacy skills, capacity building focused on knowledge of the
SDGs, social empowerment and development worldwide.

It seeks to host, manage, share, and disseminate relevant knowledge in the
local and official education languages of the communities using our platform,
and to facilitate Entrepreneurship and SME Management Training, job skills
training, connections and networking between individuals and groups dedicated
to sustainable development. 

It is with this backdrop that we at K4DWB is creating an event with the aim
of educating interested participant to learn about the powerful potential of
using social media for advancing their business.
