Solution Seeker

Environmental Protection

Climate change has led to extreme weather events affecting our natural ecosystem, impacting our wellbeing and those of our future generations.

It is vital to protect the environment through the decarbonisation of energy systems, reduction in industrial pollution and the conservation of land and biodiversity.

Solution Seeker

Food Security

With rapid population growth, land and water scarcity, as well as exploitative food systems, access to sufficient and safe food supply is not a concession for the privileged.

It is key to provide food for all, using inclusive strategies to make food systems, efficient, resilient and reliable for people - from food production to supply chain management.

Solution Seeker

Health & Social Wellbeing

In a fast-paced and evolving world, our society is faced with ever changing social struggles and diseases.

In the pursuit of universal healthcare for social wellbeing, it is imperative to support health systems for primary care, disease control and changes to social norms and behaviours - to promote healthier lifestyles and mental health.

Solution Seeker

Community Livelihood

Livelihood challenges and income inequality have led to limited access to education, skills and decent jobs to provide for the family and grow the community as a whole.

Nation building starts from home. The provision of quality education, skill-based training and income opportunities is crucial to community livelihoods. It tackles poverty, gender inequality and focuses on shared growth for national prosperity.

Solution Seeker

Heritage Preservation

Modernisation and an emphasis on progress has subjected the culture of our predecessors to a risk of being forgotten.

Historical  heritage provides a sense of identity and continuity in a globalised world. As a nation of diversity, it is everyone’s duty to protect the invaluable inheritance and practices, the multitude of cultures, as well as the arts and traditions of the people.
