Hi Hilary – Gina here, I've been working on Lifehack Labs. To answer your question, we've been focussing on developing strong teams around issues they're passionate about, rather than getting them to compete to create wellbeing-related outcomes. So we are approaching it from a 'solid team foundations' angle, paired with building wellbeing, and building an awareness for wellbeing, into the programme itself. As such, it's not a competition.
The programme itself will be launching in Wellington on 15 August, running through to 19 September. Whilst Lifehack itself hasn't got the money for further funding, we are seeking to connect the emerging teams, and open the right doors for them during the final weeks of the Labs. Hope this answers your questions, if there's anything else you'd like to know please give me a shout.
