BuildPalestine Bootcamp

Tackling challenges in the Palestinian Health Sector 

Design an impactful intervention for your community

The BuildPalestine Bootcamp takes a human-centered approach and leverages design thinking to guide social entrepreneurs through the stages of ‘inspiration, ideation, and iteration’ focused on the pre-incubation stage.  BuildPalestine’s role is to empower individuals to design thoughtful and impactful interventions for their communities. This intervention can be a product, service, initiative or program.

Prototype, test, refine and repeat to produce the best solution for your problem

 We are currently running the bootcamp virtually. The Bootcamp is a 20 hour commitment over the course of three days. The bootcamp will take place from Thursday March 24th until Saturday March 26th. 

Requirements to apply:

– Be passionate about an issue or challenge in the Palestinian health sector
– Have some prior experience in the health sector (preferable)

Ideate to solve challenges in the Health Sector

The theme for the upcoming BuildPalestine Bootcamp is Challenges and Opportunities in the Palestinian health sector. What challenges exist today, and what innovative ideas can we propose to tackle these challenges?

In the last BuildPalestine Summit, we discussed Palestine’s most pressing challenges in the health sector. We combined a report summarizing the main challenges to act as an inspiration for your to take action.
