Having launched the program and innovation space on Monday, what should we do next? Well of course put the space into good use!
Here’s an invitation to the Apps4Africa Brainstorming session on Climate Challenge, organized in collaboration with Pamoja Initiatives Ltd. Event will be held on Saturday November 12th at the newly launched innovation space so we’ll also get experience and feedback on how the space works for workshops and brainstorming.
The 2011 Apps4Africa: Climate Challenge builds on the success of the 2010 Apps4Africa: Civic Challenge in which civil society challenged program developers to find innovative technological solutions to everyday problems on issues ranging from transparency and governance to health and education.
With coordination with software developer Appfrica International, Apps4Africa will bring civil society, academia and private sector organizations together with African technology innovators to develop applications that address local climate change adaptation challenges. In doing so, we seek to raise African public awareness of climate change adaptation in Africa on these issues; support the development of civil society and private-sector networks; and highlight African solutions to local climate change challenges.
