One Planet Rating visits the city of the pyramids – Cairo

As part of a Swedish delegation, One Planet Rating was selected to participate at the biggest tech conference in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA) – The Riseup Summit.

Egypt and 
Cairo represents an important market for One Planet Rating due to the tourism heavy profile of the country. Egypt has a lot to gain by embracing sustainable tourism and travel in terms of getting more tourism spend staying in the country, attracting a new type of traveler and further enhancing their magnificent cultural heritage. One Planet Rating aims to highlight this by increasing its profile of Egypt on the platform. We look forward to collaborating with Egyptian partners and cities to bring more sustainable travelers to see it marvels.

Attending Riseup was a blast, so many new friends and potential partners during 3 days of seminars, speeches, workshops and of course parties. Riseup is very well organized and draws a massive crowd. Inspiring startups showcase their products and services and we were happy to see so many social entrepreneurs at the conference.



We managed to find time to explore Cairo. Visiting the Pyramids was a no-brainer. We also strolled the enigmatic Khan el Khalili market with its sprawling bazaars and historic mosques.

After a long day day at the conference a disco felucca cruising the Nile felt like a great idea.

Mingling at the Swedish Embassy with other entrepreneurs and investors was another highlight.

We are super excited to come back to Egypt and delve deeper into its treasures.
