The themes of the conference were “Building a more resilient economy for women during COVID-19 and beyond” and “Making innovation and technology work for women“. Scholars, entrepreneurs, UN agency managers and NGO leaders were invited to the two panel discussions, and finally an award ceremony for WEPs in China.

During the conferences, UN Women cleverly made use of the meeting site and promoted six companies with women as the main founders, or products specifically for women’s groups to all the guests at the meeting. The name of this event is “She Bounces Back” in which two Solar Run products Candles Killer and “Solar Media” participated.

Solar Run mentioned during introducing to the participants that it is precisely because of facing the poorest groups in developing countries that Candles Killer will continue to innovate, reduce costs, and make the final users affordable. It is precisely because these products are related to the lives and livelihoods of the poorest groups that Solar Run will allow the entire series of products to obtain the World Bank Lighting Global verification, regardless of cost, so that the user needn’t worry about the quality. It is precisely because of a clear grasp of the needs of the poorest groups that Solar Run was able to design the Pay-As-You-Go prepayment system under the call of the World Bank so that the users can enjoy the various benefits of solar energy in advance.
