Problem Statement

How can we use education as a platform to develop the youth as the next generation of climate champions and change-makers? 

Brief Overview

Whilst most people are aware of climate change and its detrimental effects on the environment there is limited understanding and awareness of the severity and knock-on effects on health, rise in infectious diseases and disruption to the food supply chain.

Communities such as B40, migrants and refugees, children with disabilities, rural and indigenous tribes are particularly vulnerable to climate change and form high-risk segments of society. Whilst climate risks cannot be eliminated, education is an important platform that can be leveraged to drive change. Children and youth, whether in urban or rural areas are change-makers of the future and can be equipped with tools to drive action in their respective communities and society at large.

Solution

Impact-driven solutions to equip the youth with the right knowledge and/or skills on climate change.

Solutions sought are not required to be digital in nature as long as the tools and medium used are innovative and engaging to the target segments.

Who Should Apply

Companies with learning kits, apps, games, materials, green tokens for recycling activities and other education related materials are encouraged.

Problem Statement

How can we leverage on innovative solutions to strengthen disaster preparedness for vulnerable communities towards building more resilient communities?

Brief Overview

We hear of disasters affecting communities that are living in areas that are exposed to climate related disasters. We have also, as a nation, come together to provide aid and support to communities all over Malaysia who experienced hardship as a result of the pandemic and lockdowns and more recently communities experiencing displacement and economic hardships as a result of floods.

Could we have been better prepared? Are we really aware of where the vulnerable areas are in our surrounding? Do we know which areas are safe for evacuation? 

Solution

Technology solutions that can provide better understanding of hazard mapping and early warning mechanisms of impending disasters - whether natural or man-made. Solutions that integrate data and information regarding communities in need.

Who Should Apply

Companies with solutions using Technology for Data Collation and Analysis, Mapping Technology, Drones, AI, IoT, Apps and related solutions are encouraged.

Learn More & Apply

Problem Statement

How do we educate on nutrition for better access to high quality yet affordable food sources to address malnutrition, specifically for children, pregnant and breastfeeding women?

Brief Overview

Maternal and early childhood nutrition plays a vital role in physical and mental development of children. Malnutrition is a problem that affects communities with limited access to nutritious food, those that live in poverty and low income families.

Limited access to nutritionally dense food sources is assumed to be a problem of poverty but in fact is the result of lack of knowledge, attitude and practice (KAP) regarding nutritional needs and food that can provide high quality nutrition.

Solution

Innovative and scalable solutions to ascertain nutritional needs, educate on healthy diets and achieve better overall food security for the target segment.

Who Should Apply

Companies with solutions related to sustainable and affordable food production, health and nutrition based data collation and education, digital solutions related to education, nutrition tracking, supply chain efficiencies and related fields are encouraged.
