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. A diverse group of young Montrealers joined us during the 2019 GCD at the 4th Space, a public space that acts as a bridge between the research world and the wider Montreal community at Concordia University. Inspired by the GCD venue, this year’s theme and the Designathon experiences, our young participants proved us again that children have relevant ideas and solutions that we should pay more attention to.
A solar-powered, GPS-controlled delivery robot that will bring food donations directly from food banks to those in need, at a rate of three meals a day and directly to their location.
The “Fart Trapper” would be placed on sheep, goats and cows in order to capture methane “at source”, in a balloon storage for later collection and processing into usable energy.
A truck with a cold and hot storage section that roams the city to collect leftover food and distribute it back to those in need through a network of dedicated “stops” and according to a given schedule (just like public busses).
