Checking in with our epA 2019 winners – a blog series: BLUETOWN
In this 11-part blog series, we will be checking in with our empowering people. Award (epA) 2019 winners to see what they’ve been up to since our most recent award ceremony in Cairo last July. Check out what’s new with BLUETOWN!
Below is an interview with Emil Damholt, Impact and Commercial Project Manager at BLUETOWN.
Emil: The epWorkshop reconfirmed our belief that communicating clearly both externally and internally about our mission and activities is crucial. More so, we have actively used the network for peer-learning on projects and continue to benefit from it.
Siemens Stiftung: With your membership, in what way(s) do you hope to benefit from epN? And if applicable, how have you already gained from your connection to the ecosystem?
Emil: We are very excited about the frequent workshops being hosted by the epN, even in these turbulent times, through digital means. Lately, it has been particularly helpful that the epN has provided competent guidance for Covid-19 responses. Moreover, we have been put in dialogue with the great people of the Siemens Stiftung Media Portal to collaborate on bringing their incredible learning content to the rural schools we connect; this venture really takes advantage of the synergies within the ecosystem to advance our common visions of empowering people.
Siemens Stiftung: Thank you, Emil! Congratulations for doing your part to share information related to Covid-19 via your LOCAL CLOUD solution. And, good luck with your expansion efforts!
