On Saturday, Maryam will be a judge at the CleanAcwa’s Clean Water Ideathon on April 4th is a hackathon style competition; the keynote speaker will list out the general outlines and details of the topic at hand and mention what kind of solution he or she would like to see.
Then, teams are given four hours to make an innovative and new idea following the set guidelines and organize a presentation. Each team will then get 5 minutes to present their pitch to the entire conference and the winning team will get a free trip to Ghana to present their idea at the International Clean Water conference.
Both technical and policy oriented solutions are encouraged; we want diverse solutions pitched. The event will feature a workshop with IDEO about how to make a compelling pitch. CleanAcwa’s CEO Sangu Delle and renowned Professor Susan Murcott will give the keynote addresses.
This event will be catered.
