Do you want to be part of developing solutions to the climate change and environment problems that we are currently facing in MOROCCO ?
Dates : 22 / 23 Of November.
Place : Go4work, Zerktouni Street, Casablanca, Morocco.
Time : Each day from 09:00 am to 18:00 pm
In Morocco and in the MENA region 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 school 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!
The challenge will be: How can technology help today address the urging environmental and agricultural issues? How can it help achieve the following Sustainable Development Goals?
SDG 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities
SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
SDG 13: Climate Action
SDG 14: Life Below Water
SDG 15: Life on Land
All participating teams in all Hackathons will be invited into choosing one or more of the above SDGs to work on, and come up with solutions to address it/them and achieve the goals set by the UN.
Why should you participate?
It is a community based event so you will be working with extraordinary people who believe in CHANGE.
There will be interesting workshops and webinars with EXPERTS from the Edgeryders community that will guide you through the way to develop your solution into a real sustainable product.
There will be prizes that will help turn your prototype into reality:
