SPRINTS

To make HackVSIT even more fun, we are introducing Sprints this year.
Sprints will be separate mini competitions/activities that the participants can participate in, to relax and enjoy some fun mind exercises.
Each sprint will feature task(s) related to a particular skill-set and points will be awarded to each participant based on the completion of these task(s).
The winner would be awarded a cash prize and swags from a variety of collection.

NOTE: Sprints are optional and separate mini events that will not affect the judgement of a participant in HackVSIT.

Themes

Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all.'' The SDGs, set in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and intended to be achieved by the year 2030, are part of UN Resolution 70/1, the 2030 Agenda. We have divided them into 5 groups for a better understanding of the goals as a big problem statement for our participants.
You can choose to cater to one or more of the 17 SDGs with your solution/product in HackVSIT.

Animal Welfare

Global Wildlife population has dropped by over 60 percent since the 1970s. According to a report published by the World Wildlife Fund, ‘Earth is losing biodiversity at a rate seen only during mass extinctions.’ Around 93 percent of wild cats have been lost in the past half-century, 100 million sharks and 85 thousand elephants are killed every year for illegal supply in the animal trade market. Talking about the present scenario, more than 500 million animals lost their lives in the Australian wildfires. And, these numbers are still increasing day by day. If this trend continues, the earth would lose all of its wildlife in a very short time.

Women Safety

Among the worst countries in crime, India has a heinous track record in all forms of sexual abuse. In homes, on streets, in public transports and even offices. Indian women are in a perpetual plight of alertness, like a country on terrorist alert. There have been freakish cases of rapes of toddlers, gang rapes and women trafficking. Women's safety involves strategies, practices, and policies which aim to reduce gender-based violence (or violence against women), including women's fear of crime. Are there any innovative and implementable objectives, through which we can build an effective, fast and reliant system to make women of India feel safe and empowered?

Open Innovation

Open Innovation is the use of internal and other companies' ideas to develop new businesses. It is a co-creative process that requires excellent innovation capability including rich connectivity of people in their roles within the community. Users, all with different knowledge, skills, experiences, roles, points of view and needs, can contribute positively to the innovation process. Ideas do not come when we are bound to think, they come when we are free to think. Open innovation offers the most appropriate platform for creativity. It does not bind the hands of a developer but gives them a wide platform to use their creativity to the fullest and make innovations in already existing ideas.
