Hackathon will be held on September
MBM IdeaX – ICT for Indigenous Languages is a 48-hour on-site hackathon that aims to bring together young people from all over Nepal to generate innovative and creative solutions for preserving and promoting indigenous languages, cultures, practices and communities using ICT. This hackathon is a part of the International Decade of Indigenous Languages (IDIL) mission to save, preserve, and promote Indigenous languages that are at the verge of loss. IdeaX is completely focused on helping people under Indigenous Domain. The event is organized by Madan Bhandari Memorial College in collaboration with UNESCO Nepal.
The United Nations General Assembly (Resolution A/RES/74/135) proclaimed the period between
2022 and 2032 as the International
Decade of Indigenous Languages (IDIL 2022-2032), to draw
global attention on the critical situation of many indigenous languages and to mobilize
stakeholders and resources for their preservation, revitalization and promotion.
The proclamation of an International Decade is a key outcome of the 2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages, for which the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) lead global efforts. The Organization will continue to serve as lead UN Agency for the implementation of the International Decade, in cooperation with the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and other relevant UN Agencies.
