Innovation Diwan is a unique program that follows a crowdsourcing model of innovative solutions to solve local challenges faced by our community in the Kingdom.
The program can be explained in four key phases including challenge selection, bootcamps, pitching, and solution adoption. Throughout this journey, young people are encouraged to apply their thinking and potentially implement it with potential adopters and partners.
This program was specifically designed to engage Saudi youth in solving the challenges in their community by using their innovation and problem solving capabilities.
