About this event

We need to take urgent action!

That is why The Liveability Challenge (TLC) was launched in 2018, to spark a global hunt for innovative and sustainable solutions to the challenges of urban cities.

With five editions completed, The Liveability Challenge will be back in 2023 with a sixth edition.

This year, we are doubling the prize money to S$2 million, featuring two tracks:

1. Climate Change
We are looking for disruptive innovations that can decarbonise energy generation and industries, as well as capture and utilise carbon to create scalable products for global markets. We also want solutions that address ocean challenges including innovative models that restore and regenerate coastal and marine ecosystems in Southeast Asia.

2. Food & Nutrition
We are looking for disruptive innovations that can establish a circular urban agriculture or aquaculture system, or alternative protein system. We are seeking innovative and breakthrough technological solutions to maximise production efficiency and minimise resource requirements.

Find out more about our challenge statement here.

The Liveability Challenge will award a grand prize of up to S$1million for the winner in each track.

Other funding prizes include investments of $100,000 each from our strategic partners: impact investment firm PlanetRise, impact-focused family office Rumah Group, and venture capital funds Quest Ventures and TRIREC.

We want all solutions that deliver a positive impact.

Submission close on 10 April 2023.
