Applications are now open for the YALI RLCs/ POWER AFRICA Design Challenge 2024!

YALI RLCs/ POWER AFRICA Design Challenge Overview

The Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) Regional Leadership Centres (RLCs) encourage the use of environmentally friendly technologies to effectively manage the energy crisis across the African continent. To support the work of alumni in this sector, the RLCs in collaboration with Power Africa, are posing a design challenge to women alumni who are active within the energy sector.

Interested participants are encouraged to apply for the 12-week program which will be held online starting in the first quarter of 2024, including a practical online curriculum centred on green energy, sustainability, and the SDGs. 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, who will be given nominal funding for their project ideas and taken through 6-months of coaching to support them in developing prototypes.
