Alaa Amro Entrepreneurial event in Bethlehem Palestine

On the 24th of November, I had the opportunity to meet and network with a group of 12 Austrians in Bethlehem, Palestine. Proudly, my startup proposal on food waste management in the city of Hebron was selected for the next level.

The U-Solve project focuses on the major challenges that cities in the Euro-Mediterranean region, including Cyprus, Italy, and Greece, as well as Egypt, Palestine, and Jordan. The project supports us in our efforts to make our cities sustainable, livable, and resilient over the long term. As well as assuring potential entrepreneurs, especially young people, that they can turn ideas into actual businesses.

As a EUROSUD student at the Autonomous University of Madrid, a course on public policy making inspired me to apply for this project, and to develop policy proposals that promote entrepreneurship as a tool for sustainable development in urban areas, with direct participation from public institutions throughout the process.

I am grateful for my ongoing journey with EUROSUD, which provides me with an incredible opportunity to learn and grow through the Career Development Fund that supported me to attend the event.
