We have designed a very interactive e-Hackathon to keep you motivated and engaged. Besides interesting plenaries and crash-courses to strengthen your entrepreneurial skills, we have planned energizers, fun team building exercises and e-social activities for you to interact with other young entrepreneurs around the Mediterranean Region.
You will be developing your solutions in teams. Each team will be supported by a mentor, who will be periodically checking with you throughout the hackathon. Experts will also be available, answering questions and supporting you on your way to the ingenuous solution to overcome water and climate change challenges.
Please note that the agenda is subject to slight adjustments.
We will all gather in a zoom room, getting inspired by interesting inputs and lectures, and receiving guidance about the event, available tools and support offered.
We will start these sessions with fun energizers and exercises to get us powered for new knowledge. In plenary, our trainers will offer you crash courses on “how to” develop your idea. In break-out rooms, your coaches will help you to start applying the new-acquired knowledge in your business idea.
This is the time to mingle and get to know each other. Don’t miss it!
Group Work Time
Once all is clear, your coach will let you work in groups. You may stay in your zoom rooms and work together. If you have to break for lunch/dinner, don’t worry, we will be waiting for you. Just join the plenary zoom room and ask us to set your break-out rooms again!
