Go Green with Friends, a carpooling platform that addresses Lebanon’s environmental and economic crises, won first place in the Google Solution Challenge 2022 MENA, after it was shortlisted and pitched at an online event. The idea, conceived by engineering students Georgio El Khoury, Nour Mikhael and Kevin Aoun with the support of Dr. Wissam Fawaz, contributes to two UN SDGs: Sustainable Cities and Communities, and Responsible Consumption and Production.
