For the first time in the country, 'Virtual Solventhon' is being organized. In this competition, the contestants have to give effective solutions to deal with global problems. The Federation of Bangladesh Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FBCCI) is co-sponsoring the Virtual Solve event organized by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Solve. And FBCCI Tech C is in management.
A solvethon workshop will be organized based on four themes, a press release said. The concepts are Resilient Ecosystem, Health Security and Pandemics, Equitable Classrooms and Learning Spaces and Digital Inclusion for Economic Justice. In order to participate in this activity, interested candidates and their team must register with the idea of tackling the challenges. Officers and trainees of MIT Solve will be in charge of the overall management of the program.
In this regard, FBCCI President Sheikh Fazle Fahim said, "This event is aimed at finding talented youth in the country. I firmly believe that through this, we will see potential young people who are capable of meeting global challenges, who will showcase Bangladesh's potential in the world arena in the future. '
Sonia Bashir Kabir, Advisor, FBCCI Tech, said, "In the past, the participation of promising young people in our country in organizing events like MIT Solve was very costly and time consuming. For a long time, FBCCI had planned to take timely initiatives like Virtual Solven, but it did not happen. We hope that this initiative to find talented young people in the country who are able to meet international challenges in collaboration with a powerful platform like MIT Solve will be a success and we will continue to take such initiatives in the future.
Solvathon's workshops are organized with the aim of finding effective ways to tackle global challenges on the basis of mutual discussions. The program is creating a unique opportunity to demonstrate its ability to effectively address global challenges by utilizing its own efforts and skills. The platform gives people from different parts of the world the opportunity to know, discuss and share ideas.
