Competition & Community Projects

Youth Leaders for a Sustainable Future is a contest aim at raising the consciousness of the future generations for a sustainable and liveable environment. Planning a Green and Clean City enables youths to experience what it takes to build a city from scratch. Township planning is a cross disciplinary art and science, requiring those involved to balance different interests, stage projects without interrupting current services and to push for the common good.

This competition is based on real life, real time and interactive townships. The township selected will have a defined boundary, sufficient information and appropriate assumptions associated with the purposes of the competition. We believe that through a mutual learning environment by pitting interdisciplinary skills with fellow contestants the quality of critical thinking and systems thinking can then be raised to a higher level at an accelerated pace.
