In addition , Mohamed Awad, Moyad and Mohamed addressed the topic of climate change mitigation and developed a solution named “Mangrove: Help Earth Breathe”. The idea behind their project is to spread the use of biodegradable shopping bags to fund the planting of the maximum number of Mangrove forests to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Starting on January 2020, the second phase of the Climathon project will commence. The second phase is the incubation program for Climathon participants. With generous support of UNDP, all of the 32 participants of Climathon Khartoum 2019 will be admitted and supported during the incubation.
The incubation is the process of helping entrepreneurs realize the potential of their start-ups, through access to the right mix of mentors, advice, access to network, training, and access to capital. It includes a series of tailored masterclasses, one-to-one mentorship, and support for the teams to further develop their idea and create or improve their business plans.
The Climathon is an initiative of Climate-KIC, EU’s largest public-private partnership addressing climate change through innovation to build a zero-carbon economy.
UNDP and Impact Hub Khartoum have a long-standing partnership in promoting social innovation through a unique ecosystem of resources, inspiration, and collaboration opportunities to innovate for a new kind of economy - sustainable for all people, as well as the planet.
