With more than 20 students, INJAZ Palestine participated in the first digital “innovation camp” in the Middle East and North Africa, organized by INJAZ Al-Arab organization with the support of “CITI” Bank.

The “Innovation Camp”, which was held on Thursday (4/16/2020) for three hours, gathered more than 290 students from 13 Arab countries employing Zoom technology. The purpose of the camp is to enable them to work together to find solutions to the challenges facing the education and health sectors in light of the Corona pandemic.

The camp gave students the opportunity to be in 20 teams, divided into groups, each of which worked to provide initiatives, and came up with ideas through which the challenge can be overcome using leadership, critical thinking and teamwork skills, with the support and guidance of coaches and volunteers.

From Palestine, about 20 students from the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza universities participated in the "Innovation Camp", where they worked within the teams to find practical solutions and entrepreneurial ideas. 

On her part, Rania Kutteneh said that the camp aims at creating a different experience; and an educational opportunity for the Palestinian youth, INJAZ alumni, and us as members in order to discuss the challenges we are encountering in these difficult times, especially in the areas of education, health and technology.

During the meeting, the CEO of INJAZ Al-Arab, Akef Aqrabawi praised the efforts of the participants and volunteers to ensure the success of the camp, indicating that it represents a valuable opportunity to exchange ideas and information between different countries, especially in light of the many challenges the world is witnessing because of the spread of the coronavirus. At the end of the meeting, the winning teams achieved the highest score based on the most appropriate, innovative and practical solution.

Recently, INJAZ Palestine launched several online programs, in support of continuing work and learning in light of the closure of schools and universities.
