Dear Listers
This might be of interest to our young people. Kindly ask any one
interested to apply.

Kind regards

———- Forwarded message ———

Dear Aisha, Grace and Eric,

I trust that you are well.

After having spread the idea of the DW Akademie youth pilot project during
my visit in Nairobi, I hereby send you some more information.

Kindly ask* 8 highly motivated young people *from your organisation to
apply by sending the *motivation letter* via email as well as the *audio
message on WhatsApp, *see more details in the* information sheet* attached.

The youth whom you ask to apply should have a keen interest in technology,
climate and communication, be open to work together with journalists and
willing to learn from each other. Only then will the project be a success.

Please note: This is not the invitation to a normal training; it will lead
to a hackathon in January 2023 – an intensive weekend where teams create
new concepts and/or products – it is a competition, and there will be an
award ceremony for the best creations.

For the application, kindly forward the *template and the information
sheet *attached to the candidates of your organisation.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I wish you a restful weekend.

Kind regards,

*Dr. **Almuth **Schellpeper*
