The Apella Institute is organising a two-day communication hackathon on July 8th and 9th.

50 selected attendees will have the chance to develop an idea of a social media campaign around the theme of corruption risks in the higher education in Armenia mentored by experienced education and communication experts.

Students of social sciences, marketing and PR will be key participants, but the event welcomes others interested in art, design and fabrication. Teams up to 6 will do problem solving and attempt to create plans and samples of future communication campaigns to raise awareness of corruption risks and possible ways for enhancing the understanding of integrity among students, lecturers and activists.

The hackathon is implemented by the Apella Institute in cooperation with Impact Hub Yerevan and supported by the Council of Europe. Learn more about the project here.
