Lights on for AIME 2020

Press Room > 2019

Inspired by the 2020 theme of ‘the power of human connections’, the AIME team has partnered with SolarBuddy an Australian registered charity that provides solar powered lights to children in third world countries.

SolarBuddy was the first charity in the world to supply donated solar lights directly to children, and has educated over 130,000 students in over 500 schools, across 21 countries. Its mission is to help improve the educational opportunities of six million children living in energy poverty throughout South Pacific, Southeast Asia and Africa by 2030 through providing them SolarBuddy to study with after dusk.

So how does it work at AIME 2020?

Delegates will be tasked with building SolarBuddy from scratch. The lights made during the 2020 event, will give guests the opportunity to create something meaningful, while connecting and building relationships with one another for charity.
