The 2023 RE-NEW Our World Challenge seeks to address this crisis by inspiring young minds to think creatively about solutions that can make a real, impactful difference,” commented Ettiene Van Der Watt, Regional Director for Middle East & Africa at Axis Communications. “Given our commitment to building smarter, safer and more sustainable communities in the UAE and across the broader Middle East, this is an excellent opportunity for us to engage with the next generation of UAE innovators and inspire them to use technology to create solutions that can impact the world.”
