The session showcases the Local Labs. Local Labs are designed to unlock local potential and create tangible solutions. A diverse team of local change makers goes through a tested five step process to shift from a challenge to a solution in two days. In November 2021, 18 teams from Europe and the Mena region participated simultaneously while being supported by local mentors and international best practice owners.
