Empower Your Future: 
Join the 'AI for Global Nutrition Youth Camp'

In a world where artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping how we approach global challenges, there lies an unprecedented opportunity for the youth to drive significant impact. 

Are you ready to explore how AI can be leveraged to address one of the most pressing issues of our time—global nutritional challenges?

What's the Purpose of This Camp?

"The AI for Global Nutrition Youth Camp" is a collaborative initiative by BIID, CGSI, and the Bangladesh Computer Council, designed to empower young minds with the knowledge and tools to drive positive change.

In a world grappling with challenges like climate change and economic disparity, AI holds the key to addressing these issues, and this camp is poised to unlock that potential. This camp introduces two tailored tracks: one for youth aged 12-18 and another for college students, each designed to meet their specific learning needs and interests.

The camp's mission is to create an environment that nurtures innovation and practical application of AI to improve global nutrition and health. It offers participants, regardless of their age group, the opportunity to explore AI's potential, develop impactful projects, and transform their passion and creativity into actions that contribute to a better world.
Who Can Join?

Our AI for Global Nutrition Youth Camp welcomes participants from two distinct tracks: youth enthusiasts aged 12-18 and college students, each with a curiosity about technology and a drive to address global challenges. 
Youth Track (Ages 12-18)

Open to teenagers who are keen to explore the world of AI, this track is perfect for those at any level of understanding, from beginners to those with some experience. 

The focus will be on igniting a passion for technology and empowering participants with the tools to make a difference in global issues.
College Track

Designed for college students who are looking to deepen their knowledge of AI and its applications in solving real-world problems.
It's an excellent opportunity for students to apply their academic learning in a practical setting, enhance their resumes, and collaborate on solutions that have a tangible impact on global nutrition and health.
Both tracks will be guided through a journey of learning, discovery, and innovation, tailored to fit the varying levels of expertise and focus areas. This inclusive approach ensures that every participant, regardless of age or educational background, can find value and opportunities for growth in our camp.
