12 years – That’s all the time humanity has left to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius, as the recent IPCC report makes clear.
But it’s not time to give up—we can still stop this. If we are going to avoid a global climate crisis and build a sustainable future, we’ll need to slash emissions by 45% before 2030.
To do that, we need to speed up the shift to clean energy; we need to get smart with the way we produce and consume; we need a circular economy. That’s why The Liveability Challenge is back to close the financing gap between the ideas that will make cities liveable places and the investments that will make these solutions a reality.
Between 10 January and 5 April 2019, we’re looking for the most innovative and ground-breaking energy and circular economy solutions that have achieved proof of concept.
The six best projects will get to pitch their solutions at The Liveability Challenge Grand Finale held on 7th June at the prestigious annual Ecosperity Conference in Singapore. The brightest innovators and companies stand a chance to win up to S$1 million in grant funding, mentorships, and funding opportunities offered by the most sought-after investors and venture capitalists in the region.
