Handprint Challenge: Sustainability Challenge for Colleges in Asia-Pacific

Supported by UNEP, this challenge aims at promoting sustainability in college students across Asia and the Pacific by asking students to form teams (not exceeding 10 members per team), identify sustainability issues on their campus and propose an action plan to be implemented by them in the upcoming months. Top teams will be given a seed funding of up to USD 1000 each (upto USD 750 for preliminary qualifiers and an extra USD 500 for final winners), to implement their action plans and carry out sustainability activities on campus. The reports from these teams will be uploaded and updated on the SAYEN website and their individual profiles on the contest page and based on their Handprint, the teams with the largest Handprint in their region will be adjudged winners and awarded the Handprint flag in an award ceremony at the end of 2014.

    Iam a student aged 19years with more experience about health and environmental sustainability. Currently we are organising for a youth activity program on the national youth day in Uganda under an NGO called Reproductive Health Uganda. With this we enforce and empower youth to maintain green land more effectively. I would like to also engage in the upcoming programs of UNEP.

    Though I missed this opportunity but I can see my colleagues, brothers and sisters around me who have been selected and are working on their projects like SEW and ICT for agriculture. It feels so inspiring to see plans turn into actions. I would like to hear more about the selected projects in coming days. Wishing them all the best :)

    I hope there will be a regional event for the Philippines! I can see MANY new Filipino accounts being active here for the past few months... I think one good way of promoting the platform to other people also is by inviting them to join online events/competitions. ☺ What do you think, Team Eco-gen?
