The curriculum will guide participants in developing ideas for solutions to the Design Challenge following the Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test approach” in a highly experiential learning format.

Throughout the program, Alumni will discuss their experiences and deepen their knowledge in key areas where further sustainability practice and development are needed. At the end of the learning period, participants will present
their ideas to a panel of judges who will evaluate the best ideas to determine the top three winners.

The objective of the challenge is to promote Africa’s smart solutions for sustainable green energy. Female alumni from the four YALI RLCs, active within the energy sector are invited to apply. Based on the ideas submitted, 24 outstanding individuals will be selected to participate in the design challenge.
