Join The Liveability Challenge!

Temasek Foundation Ecosperity presents a new global call for innovative solutions to challenges facing cities in the 21st century - The Liveability Challenge. Launched on 5 April 2018 and closing on 25 May 2018, the first-ever Challenge is accepting submissions on viable proposals on addressing urban waste and cooling.

Mr Lim Hock Chuan, Chief Executive of Temasek Foundation Ecosperity said, “The Liveability Challenge is an opportunity for us to bring together the entire ecosystem of innovators, funders, investors, platform providers and professionals and excite them to find impactful solutions to make Singapore and the region a more liveable place. We hope to give the talents and the innovators a helping hand and help them advance their solutions towards eventual successful commercialisation.”
