Environmental Hackathon

Environmental Hackathon

On the occasion of  the International Francophonie Month, the AUF Middle East is organizing a regional Hackathon on the theme of the environment on Saturday, March 26, 2022 from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm. This hackathon will be organized at the same time at the CEF of Beirut, the CNF of Tripoli, the CNF of Alexandria and the University of Djibouti.

Student entrepreneurs, from AUF member universities in Lebanon, Djibouti, and Egypt, will work as a team for 9 hours in a row to imagine new solutions to 6 environmental challenges:

  • Pollution (soil, air, water);
  • Waste generation;
  • Global warming;
  • Renewable energies;
  • Recycling;
  • Biodiversity.

The day will be punctuated by training and coaching sessions to help students develop their idea and pitch it in French in front of a jury. Each team will consist of 3 to 5 people, with at least one French-speaking student to pitch.

At the end of the day, each center or campus will designate a winning team. These 4 teams will then participate in a regional pitch to designate the regional winner.

  • Prize for each winning team per center: €500
  • Prize for the regional winning team: 1000 €

Registration deadline: 20/03/2022
