MEPI Day of Service Virtual 2021
The MEPI Day of Service encourages MEPI Alumni to plan and participate in community service activities in their home communities. It is a movement by the MEPI Alumni Connection to encourage building team spirit, connecting with U.S. embassies, and fostering community engagement. The MEPI Day of Service Virtual 2021 will take place on April 03, 2021 in all eligible countries.
The MEPI Day of Service is part of the MEPI Alumni Connection, a program of the US-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) and implemented by IREX.
The theme for the MEPI Day of Service Virtual 2021 is “climate change and environmental issues.” The MENA region has been facing a wide array of environmental stresses that include water shortage, arable land depletion, air pollution, inefficient waste management, and degradation of coastal ecosystems. We encourage you to focus on projects and awareness related to climate change and environmental issues in their communities for their MEPI Day of Service 2021 activities. Make sure to use the theme hashtag #ClimateAndEnvironment. All alumni are invited to participate with other project themes as well.
