Competition: Environmate - Got a great idea for the environment?


Global Compact Network Lebanon, the local chapter of the UN Global Compact, is currently organizing a one-of-a-kind competition targeting young professionals and university students with great ideas for the environment. Environmate is an environmental competition whose ultimate objective is to create a proper framework for home-grown solutions that address today’s most urgent energy and environmental challenges in Lebanon. Its role will be to find, fund, and foster young bright Lebanese ecopreneurs, providing them with the vision, incentives and resources to grow their ideas into viable implementation. Environmate seeks to provide a platform for interaction and visibility between those who have the ideas and those who can provide the capital. After the selection of applications on April 15, 2017, businesses from GCNL network will adopt one of the participating teams and provide them with the necessary coaching leading up to the ENVIRONMATE HACKATHON where they will announce the three winners and distribute the prizes in the order of first, second and third place ($10,000, $7,000 and $5,000, respectively).
