Idove Forum

The Fourth iDove Intercontinental Youth Forum (IYF) will focus on practical and innovative solutions to challenges that you experience in your daily work in the field while implementing PVE initiatives – with particular focus on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.The virtual format of the 4th iDove IYF presents the opportunity to virtually work together towards solutions in a creative way. iDove presents: a PV E-Hackathon. The word hackathon is a combination of the words "hack" and "marathon" where hack stands for experimental, creative problem- solving with a playful approach and marathon stands for the duration of the event.  Participants of the 4th iDove IYF will work in small groups/ break-out sessions to encourage creative thinking, brainstorming, foster team-building and problem-solving that will lead to tackle real-life challenges the participants are facing in their daily PVE work.
