Tunawatafuta wajasiriamali wa chakula wa kizazi kijacho, ambao wamehamasika kutengeneza suluhisho jipya na bunifu katika kuendeleza na kuweka usawa kwenye mfumo wa chakula hapa Arusha. Je, wewe ni kijana mwenye ndoto za kuunda ekolojia ya vifungashio, kuendelea kutumia kwa mara nyingine taka za chakula, kusambaza chakula bora na salama kwenye migahawa, au kuwa mpishi maarufu? Zifanye ndoto zako kuwa halisi kwa kushiriki kwenye 'kongamano la vijana wabunifu', ambapo uwezakano wa kuchangia kwenye mfumo wa chakula endelevu ni bayana.

Inafanyaje kazi hasa?

Siku 2 za kongamano la vijana wabunifu, utapata suluhisho la biashara yako katika kuendeleza na kukuza usawa wa mfumo wa chakula jijini Arusha. Pamoja na washiriki wapatao 200, utagawanywa kwenye makundi ili kufanyia kazi mawazo mapya ya biashara zikiwa na kauli mbiu 3-4 ambazo vyanzo vyake vimetokana na jamii husika. Kwa mfano;

  • Matumizi endelevu (e.g.utayarishaji wa chakula,maduka ya chakula salama, migahawa safi na bora, kulisha mashule)

Wawezeshaji watawaelekeza washiriki kupitia vikundi vyao wakati wa mjadala. Wataalam watashirikishwa katika kutoa historia na mbin mbadala juu ya changamoto na fursa kwenye mada husika. Mwisho wa Hackathon, washiriki watahamasishwa kushiriki kwenye kambi la Generation Food kwa msaada zaidi.
