British Council Malaysia is organising the A.R.C Challenge Malaysia – in response to Climate Change and COP26 – which brings together stakeholders from the arts and creative industries, education, science and civil society sectors to collaborate on a common challenge in response to climate change and offer innovative and interdisciplinary solutions that create awareness and enhance resilience among youth. A grant call was held earlier this year for applicants to submit proposals on solutions that empower young people to take positive action which can cascade awareness and create greater resilience amongst others in their generation, as well as influence policy making.

The A.R.C. Challenge Malaysia Pitching Session aims to provide a platform for the three winning projects of the A.R.C. Challenge Malaysia Grant to pitch to a panel and audience of funders and experts. This curated event hope to bring support to the grant project teams in terms of delivery, scalability and potentially, further funding and collaborations.

The session will feature the following:

  • Short pitching presentations by our three winning grantees,
  • Feedback session by the panellists, and
  • A breakout room session, deep dive discussion where the grantees have a chance to asks panellists and audiences further questions delivery, scalability, and support on further funding and collaborations.
