What is ITI?
Impact Through Inspiration is our annual Ideathon-style event that aims to empower creative and passionate youths to come up with innovative solutions to address current social issues.
We offer a short, intensive, workshop-like experience for participants to gain substantial insights into the theme. Participants work in teams and use design-thinking and innovative learning practices to ideate and collaborate on possible solutions.
1. Pitching & Judging
Each team will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges at the final stage of the Ideathon. Each pitch will be followed by a live Q&A session for our esteemed judges to seek further clarification on the ideas and share any comments they have from the pitch. Winning teams would have the opportunities to tap onto project funding offered by sponsors to work on the ideas and make an impact on the community.
Keen to support young minds and their ideas? Join us for ITI 2022.
Various workshops would be conducted for the participating teams to equip them with the relevant basic skills for the Ideathon. Workshops serve as a platform for participating teams to interact with one another and our sponsors. These workshops will also allow participants to gain the required depth of knowledge and understanding of the problem statement that is the focus of the Ideathon.

3. Fringe Activities
Apart from Workshops, participants of Ideathon will have the opportunity to take part in fun Fringe Activities designed to encourage interaction amongst fellow participants and learn more about the specific challenge that they are trying to solve. Participants stand a chance to win attractive prizes and gain deeper understanding of how others think!
In AY20/21, our problem statement was “How would your team encourage the community to ensure social inclusion of elderly in Singapore in today’s new normal?”
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely altered the way we interact, often turning to online means. With social distancing measures in place, seniors lack much-needed social interaction and physical activity which could have major negative impacts on their mental and physical health.
Thus, it is imperative that we find safe ways to include seniors in our community without compromising on overall public health and safety in today’s climate.
