Do you want to be part of developing solutions to the environmental problems that we are currently facing in Greater Tunis?
Dates : 22 / 23 /24 Of November.
Place : Tunisia, Greater Tunis at Higher School of Digital Economy.
Time : Non stop
In Greater Tunis, and Tunisia in general, the environmental issues are NOT yet considered as REAL problems, which could be understood when you find a huge unemployment rate, the poverty and dropping out of schools rates have also increased in the last few years because of the economic crisis. BUT, we know how we should move for the environment, and how if we think sustainability, if we think long term, then people should be aware of how serious our environmental issues are.
For that, we are going to be part of the Edgeryders Hackathon series that are going to be delivered in the MENA region, to raise awareness, to tackle our problems and solve them!
Why should you participate?
- It is a community based event so you will be working with extraordinary people who believe in CHANGE.
