FEEDBACK ON THE “GREEN TALENT” COMPETITION
Seeds of Hope Program in Morocco
The final of the first edition of the Talents Verts competition took place on 26 October 2016 at the premises of JUK SPEL in Kénitra. Based on a similar successful experience in Egypt in 2015, this project was initiated by the IECD in collaboration with the French Embassy, Schneider-Electric, the DCI of Monaco and Nexans.
The participants to this contest, all students of the “Seeds of Hope” partner schools, have competed to create innovative, economical and ecological solutions to meet the major environmental challenges.
Two events were organized:
- “My Green City” was axed on social initiatives with an environmental perspective: the candidates have to imagine ways of changing behavior in their social environment, whether to propose new solutions, mobilize the inhabitants or awaken consciences.
- “My Green Energy” spotlighted original inventions in the form of prototypes. Already presented during the Climate Day organized by the French Institute and the French Embassy in Rabat on 1 October 2016, the prototypes were unveiled in their final version, before a public interested and sometimes even fascinated by the prospects offered By these inventions.
A total of 6 projects were submitted to a jury composed of representatives of the main partners of the competition and of the Seeds of Hope program in Morocco. The jury, delighted by all the projects, subsequently presented the various prizes to the participants, ranging from a scientific discovery trip to Paris to sports shoes and mountain bikes. All participants also received a widely packed toolbox to begin their “turnkey” active life and had the opportunity to present their project at the COP22, from 7 to 18 November in Marrakech!
Thanks to its success, this competition initiated by the IECD in Morocco, on the model of a first experience in Egypt, will lead to new editions in the coming years. “
