The Liveability Challenge is a global initiative that hunts for and accelerates the adoption of innovative solutions to urban challenges of the 21st century in cities in the tropics. It crowd-sources the world for the best sustainability solutions and provides both the monetary and ecosystem support needed to take these ideas from laboratory to market​.

Established in 2018, TLC has grown to become Asia’s largest sustainability solutions platform with a global reach and a reputation for helping companies — whose innovations are disrupting industries to create significant positive impact for society and planet — achieve success.

Hot on the heels of three successful editions of The Liveability Challenge, Temasek Foundation and Eco-Business will once again deliver a highly anticipated initiative in 2021 to accelerate urban transformation and deliver measurable impact. TLC accepts solutions that have proof of concept and are at Technology Readiness Level 6 and above.

The virtual launch is now fully registered - see you on our Facebook livestream.
