Sustainable development- The Euromed University of Fez hosted the MIPAI-The Mediterranean Intelligence and Public Affairs Institute association in its eco-campus during its stopover in the city of Fez.
Arrived aboard Tesla brand electric cars, the "Light Us" caravan was warmly welcomed by the community of the Euromed University of Fez. Upon arrival, the crew members were received by the Vice President of the University, the faculty and administration as well as the students, all proud and happy to receive the convoy. For his part, the President of the Association (MIPAI), Ayoub Makhloufi, expressed his enthusiasm for this noble cause aimed at raising awareness on the issue of sustainable development, carried both by his association and by the Euromed University of Fez.
The photovoltaic torch that will mark the symbolic transition from COP 24 (Katowice in Poland) to COP 25 (in Santiago, Chile) was manufactured in the additive manufacturing and 3D printing laboratories of the University with the help of by Professor Sébastien Vaudreuil, teacher-researcher at UEMF. Today, this torch that combines artificial intelligence and sustainability has become a strong and meaningful universal symbol. Proudly wearing the colors of the Moroccan flag upon the arrival of the "Light Us" crew on the territory, it undoubtedly recalls the desire of its creators Zacharia Saha and Ayoub Makhloufi, young Franco-Moroccans, to underline the importance of the objectives of the sustainable development to save the planet.
As a reminder, the "Light Us" project is labeled COP22 and supported, among others, by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, the Union for the Mediterranean (UpM), the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME) , MEDEF, CGPME, CGEM and IRESEN. The MIPAI team will be welcomed at COP25 in the presence of Polish, Chilean and Moroccan authorities.
