The winners of the CLIMTNA competition have been revealed during the award ceremony organized on Thursday 20 January in Rabat, Morocco. The competition is organized by the Delegation of the European Union to Morocco in partnership with Hit Radio and the SwitchMed program and aims to raise awareness on the effects and visible impacts of climate change.

After deliberations by a jury composed of members of each partner organization of the competition, and in particular the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) for SwitchMed, the name of the CLIMTNA winner was revealed: Soumia Elouassouli with her app for detecting forest fires.

The competition also rewarded two personal favourites:
