By 2050, global carbon emissions must reach net zero emissions to keep temperatures within a 1.5 degree Celsius rise from pre-industrial levels. Scientists regard this as critical to prevent the worst effects of climate change.
With more than 50 billion tonnes of carbon emissions released into the atmosphere annually, we need revolutionary ideas that will enable humanity to drastically reduce the production of greenhouse gas emissions and its removal at scale.
At the same time, our disposable culture has exacerbated resource scarcity, and created a pollution crisis that threatens the natural ecosystems which we need to thrive. We need a circular economy to replace the existing linear model that is hugely wasteful and pollutive. How can we find solutions which are restorative and regenerative in design?
From 15 January to 15 April 2021, The Liveability Challenge is accepting proposals with the most disruptive, game-changing ideas that will help cities accelerate decarbonisation and address its resource challenges. Finalists will compete for the grand prize of up to S$1 million in grant funding for project development, with other exclusive prizes to be won!
Finalists will get the exclusive opportunity to pitch their game-changing solutions at The Liveability Challenge Grand Finale.
The teams will have to convince some of Asia’s most sought-after investors that their innovations will not only accelerate urban transformation and deliver measurable impact for society and planet but also a rare—and profitable—business opportunity.
The best solutions will be selected by our judges to win up to S$1 million in funding and other opportunities.
