The event comprised of multiple speaker sessions delivered by professionals within the Sustainability and Climate Change field. After presenting their initial pitches for sustainable solutions like up cycling and “green bricks” (among others), the participants received a “speed mentoring” session from the expert speakers. Towards the end of the event, participating students got the opportunity to demo their projects and are expected to receive a grant of 2000 USD from The Asia Foundation and US Consulate Peshawar to pursue their projects.
“We hope to address all broad and deep challenges impacting our nation and communities. Of course, we will not achieve absolute success immediately, but our roadmap forward is based upon a clear vision, thoughtful strategy and flawless execution.
Events like the Net Zero Tech Camp are an opportunity for us to empower our communities to use their skills and make a difference. We are so happy to be collaborating with NIC Peshawar and contributing to climate action initiatives.” – Mahwish Khan Arbab, Director Community and Partnerships at Code for Pakistan.
