#Hackad Methodology

Future jobs, local digital talent and new educational approaches are the three main pillars of the Social Hackademy proposed and promoted by the #hackAD European partnership.

The Social Hackademy Methodology presents the conceptual and operational elements that have characterized the consolidation of good practice in the field of digital skills for social innovation into a permanent laboratory of grassroots digital co-creation initiatives.

The origins of the Social Hackademy methodology go back to 2016 and the Italian final event of the Generation0101 project when the first edition of Social Hackathon Umbria was organized. It immediately demonstrated to impact in a positive and sustainable way on all the actors involved in the co-creation process of digital solutions to societal challenges.

A Social (Crowddreaming) Hackademy contributes to accelerating the maturation of a “digital thought” and its fusion with “object thinking”, retracing a path similar to that which led from the “Era of Stampification” to the Renaissance. In other additional words, the Social (Crowddreaming) Hackademy contributes to a democratic and sustainable civilization process of the digital dimension of our planet. Furthermore, the Social (Crowddreaming) Hackademy aims to develop a new perspective that enables the capability of seeing the complete reality of the world around us.
