“Alexandria Climathon for Youth” at the BA
The BA Sustainable Development Studies, Youth Capacity Building, and African Relations Support Program organizes “Alexandria Climathon for Youth” competition. “Climathon” is an international competition held in several countries around the world through EIT Climate-KIC, which aims at raising the awareness of urban residents about climate changes. The competition is an opportunity for young people to participate in developing ideas that address local climate challenges. The activities of “Climathon” are held internationally on the same date in hundreds of cities, and are supported by local organizers.
This year’s competition is held in several cities across Egypt, as part of the preparations for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27), which will take place in November 2022 in Sharm El-Sheikh.
The BA Sustainable Development Studies, Youth Capacity Building, and African Relations Support Program is organizing this year’s competition for the first time in the city of Alexandria.
Young people from 18 to 35 years old can participate in the competition in the form of groups. Each group should consist of 3 – 5 persons (either students or researchers and academics), and should make suggestions and propose creative solutions that can help alleviate the consequences of climate change in Alexandria. Ideas can be an existing project, an emerging project, or a scientific thought for a proposed project to reduce climate challenges and environmental problems in Alexandria.
