The ASEAN Impact Challenge 2019!

ASEAN Impact Challenge is a regional programme to discover innovators and entrepreneurs from Southeast Asia who are accelerating the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals through cross-sector partnerships and scaling disruptive innovations. Initiatives by participant teams have ranged from waste management, agriculture, microfinance, microbiology, improving livelihoods, alternative education, environment, and sustainable, low-cost housing.

The theme for our 2019 edition was ‘Circular Futures: Innovations for a Circular Economy’ and hoped to discover innovations from the citizen and private sectors that are contributing to the circular economy transformation in the region through the power of entrepreneurship and collaboration.
