Based on the MoU, ESO will implement the initiative that targets 100 students from colleges and universities to perform on revolutionary options comprising applications, software program and projects more than a 3-day period.
Eng Omar al Wahaibi, group CEO, signed the MoU on behalf of Nama Group and Dareen Mehdi Jaaffar, board member, signed on behalf of ESO.
The ECO-Thon will concentrate on waste management (lowering waste, recycling, upcycling, waste-to-power innovations), carbon capture and options (intelligent transportation, carbon capture by means of plants, renewable power sources as options) and power and water efficiency (on campus). Students are requested to use any platform, framework, language, or hardware device to configure their applications, software program and projects.
Eng Wahaibi, mentioned, “Nama Group aims to raise awareness and create a sustainability-led culture by training and developing young Omani talents. The initiative will support the students to create their own projects and develop their entrepreneurial ability as well.” The students will be supplied with the chance to find out much more about the chosen subjects, meet other students and also meet their mentors. On the final day, they want to finalise their items and tips and present them to a panel of evaluators.
Dareen mentioned, “Our mission is not only to protect Oman’s natural surroundings but also influence sustainable behaviour through education. We want to be at the forefront of promoting solutions to tackle environmental issues.”
