Call for Nile Workshop Participants!

Dear backers,

This week we have sent a call out for participants to apply to our Nile Workshop, part of our January 2013 Nile Gathering in Aswan, Egypt. Here is a letter with links to the invitation and application form. Feel free to help us spread the word! Thank you.


The Nile Project is a new initiative with a mission to inspire, educate, and empower Nile citizens to work together to foster the sustainability of their river ecosystem. Through an innovative approach combining music, informal education, and an enterprise platform, the project seeks to address the cultural and environmental challenges at the root of the Nile basin’s problems.

To kick off the Nile Project, we are organizing our first annual Nile Workshop to take place in Aswan, Egypt from January 10 - 14, 2013. This workshop aims to engage participants and inspire them to play an active role in expanding the Nile Project network across East Africa and beyond.

We are inviting entrepreneurs, innovators, and leaders working in fields of relevance to the Nile Project to apply to attend the workshop. Potential participants should show an interest to dialogue and collaborate on addressing issues that cut across the social, cultural, environmental, and economic challenges applicable to the Nile.

To find out more about the workshop, the project and how to apply, please review the attached invitation.
