About the host:

Nadyn grew up in Lebanon and moved to Dubai 15 years ago. Through work experience, education and motherhood, she has found inspiration in children’s creativity and is now completely invested in programs that feed, sustain and enrich this most valuable asset. Talah grew up in Lebanon and lived in Europe, America and the UAE. She has transformed her rich background into a committed investment in encouraging creativity in children and helping them acquire the right skills for a better future.

About the event:

Talah and Nadyn founded the The Wonder Generation because they believe in investing
in the creative potential of children to mould them into changemakers and social agents. The Wonder Generation is a hub where children can acquire and practice skills that will set them apart and prepare them for the future. The Global Children’s Designathon fits all of these criteria. We love the message the GCD is sending out to the world and we are privileged to be part of this initiative.

Cow Factory

This team designed an indoor farming factory for cattle, that is self sustaining with solar-panels and windmills and water panels. It includes a mating room, a feeding room where grass is grown, a milking room for the moms and a butcher room for the old cows. There is also a chimney that filters the air and captures greenhouse gases.

The Cow Building

This team designed a building for vertical dairy farming where the cow poop and farts are used to make fertilisers to grow the food that the cow would then eat. It is a closed system that has zero waste and saves space by being vertical.

The together cycle

This team designed a factory where everyone is welcome. Food waste is used for compost and the edible food is taken apart for poor people. It is a combination of recycling, repurposing and reusing with a social aspect.
