We are delighted and honored to be hosting the Regional Final Africa this year, after being the National Leads of Egypt for four years in a row and witnessing a couple of Egyptian National Finalists reaching the Regional Finals the last couple of years. This long partnership based on trust and successes has only inspired us to take the lead this year and host the Regional Finals of 2022. With COP27 being hosted by Egypt this same year, the regional finals are a great opportunity to showcase the large pool of green businesses working for climate action. Through this opportunity, youthinkgreen will gain the invaluable space to get to know and have in-depth communications with participating startups from the African region.
