About the host:

My mission is to ‘help cities and youth rise to their full potential’. As a social entrepreneur I like to engage in projects and collaborate with people who support this mission. I am the founder of Medina Works, a strategy + design consultancy based in Montreal and Tunis that helps governments, non-profits and businesses craft impactful strategies and programs, develop skills, and build enabling platforms that foster youth innovation and contribute to advancing the SDGs within the context of cities.

About the event:

Medina Works is partnering with Designathon Works for the third year now by hosting the GCD in Montreal and Tunis. We have two great teams of facilitators (social innovators, educators, tech professionals) who are all passionate about the event. We are very excited because we know from previous experience that we will get to collaborate with great co-facilitators, to connect with like-minded hosts form around the world and most of all, to work with the children who always amaze us with their creativity and inventions.
