LNBTI Team Won the First Place in Port City Colombo Ideathon
Port City Colombo YouthSpeak Forum 2021 was organized by AIESEC in Sri Lanka with Port City Colombo. The main objective of this event was to give a place for Sri Lankan youth to express their ideas and educate themselves on Sustainable Development. As an internal event linked to the Port City Colombo YouthSpeak Forum the Port City Colombo Ideathon was held. Through the Ideathon the Sri Lankan youth aged 16 to 30 were given the opportunity to pitch their breakthrough ideas. The Ideathon was based on three main categories; Urban Development & Green Cities, Technological Advancements & Smart Cities, and Urban Livelihood & Social Well Being. Both individual and team applicants were encouraged to participate.
From LNBTI, two teams of students participated in the event under the category Technological Advancements & Smart Cities. Through the participation, they gained considerable knowledge on Sustainable Development and different technological models related to the smart city concept. Further to that, they went through crash courses in technical writing, research, and presentation as part of the work they did for the Ideathon. Further to that they also got the chance to take part in knowledge sessions organized by AIESEC Sri Lanka.
It is with great delight we announce that one of the LNBTI teams placed FIRST in the top three finalists at the Port City Colombo Ideathon! The teams consisted of Sadeeka Tharushi and Mishen Dilruk Perera from Batch 05.
LNBTI would like to give them our heartiest congratulations!
