In Solidarity against COVID-19

Ideation Challenge

Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF) and Hamad Bin Khalifa University (HBKU) launches “In Solidarity Against Covid-19” Ideation Challenge.

With the emergence of the Novel Coronavirus, the world is going through a tough time creating new challenges for all. Everyone around the world is trying to adapt to new norms in their own way as they work together to protect themselves and their communities from Covid-19. As the pandemic will change the world forever, we aim to collect the best experiences, actions, and responses put forward by individuals and communities during the outbreak.

 

Categories

The challenge will be held in three categories. Participants can apply one or all categories at the same time. Read the terms of participation on how to apply multiple categories.

 

Category Questions 

1- What are you as an individual or your community doing to tackle the problems arising from the Covid-19?

2- What are some of the lessons you’ve learned from living in the pandemic?
