# What
Mangrove-ReFi Collaboration Challenge via Imagination Platform MURAL.

​In this facilitated event, you'll learn about the significant challenges faced by mangrove initiatives from a cross section of people with first hand experience. Then in small groups, apply innovations using both new and existing solutions to address these challenges. Participants may represent DAO’s, for profit enterprises, and individuals.

​​After the event, teams with the most loved and promising ideas will have the opportunity to work with first-class designers to upgrade the fidelity of their concepts, then share them in conversations with notable investors, influencers, and domain experts. ​
