During the second week of November 2016, the European Physical Society [EPS] Young Minds project, in close cooperation with the associations Migrations Co-developpement Alsace, Liter of light France and the University of Beni Mellal, developed solar kits lamps. A group of more than 30 people assembled the different components collected for the project “Solar lamp kits”. Once ready, these solar kits delivered to families and other workers in places where the use of light is often limited due to geographical or economic reasons.
A few days later, the group attended the UN Climate Change Conference [COP22] held in Marrakech, Morocco from the 7-18 November 2016. The project was presented with a poster exhibited throughout the conference and with a talk given by representatives of the associations involved.
The project was partly funded through “EPS Special Activity Fund” provided by the European Physical Society.
