It's been an exciting week here in the EB newsroom. We launched the world's first Liveability Challenge which aims to unearth sustainable solutions for Asia's cities. Anyone in the world with an idea to cool our sweltering cities or to tackle our growing waste problem could win up to S$1 million and pitch their ideas to Asia's most sought-after investors at the upcoming World Cities Summit in July.
This week, we are also unveiling the Climate Photo Challenge, a call on our global community to help us find that powerful image for climate change which inspires people. Three winning entries will be exhibited at our Changing Course exhibition from 1st June to 12th July at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage site attracting millions of visitors all over the world each year.
For those who have not joined our EB circle yet, please do join us and support our work. It helps to fund journalism dedicated to sustainable development in this region. Thank you!
As Asia's bustling cities expand, they risk becoming less liveable. A new global competition aims to find solutions to make cities more sustainable places to live, with up to S$1 million in funding up for grabs.
