A Genetics student Imad Boumendil is one of Unite the World Participants from across the world selected to be a part of UW Spring Camp that took him for a 7-day trip to Tunisia over the spring break.
Imad wrote a daily blog to highlight what he was able to learn while in Tunisia. He wrote stories between March 22 and 24.
The complete content and other photographs can be viewed on Unite the world’s Facebook page.
The following are Imad’s stories written from his point of view:
“It was the first day where participants first met the organizers and explored the place where the camp was held and it was the first time that participants met each other and broke the ice with some mind games.
We were then introduced to the UW initiative and held seminars.
In the morning we held seminars, guest speakers and debate in the afternoon. At the early evening, we were introduced to our teammates and started working on our group projects which is basically coming up with an idea that might solve the issue and start developing it.”
“We had a pitching training, a seminar and a debate, with a coffee break in the middle. After launch we had another seminar and an open circle to discuss the theme issue solution (which was the Climate change in the first camp), after that a guest speaker shared more information and experience to finish the day with more working on our group project where we create the marketing plan, the objectives (short term and long term) and the presentation. ”
It's the most important day for it's the pitching day; every group has to present their project idea and develop it to actually solve the problem either completely or partially and finally every participant will be recognized as a Unite The World Alumni/ambassador and will have the opportunity to organize his own Unite the world event.
During the UW spring camp 2019, I got the opportunity to meet and know the founders of UW, to work with them, learn from them things like:
The art of debate
Knowing how to judge
Studying and presenting a project
and much much more.
