With the 2016 theme: “Engineering our Future through Environmental Sustainability”, we have identified 30 brilliant young scientists from 11 partner Universities who have created solutions that bring us one step closer to addressing our urgent environmental challenges — with researches focused on sustainable materials, agriculture, disaster mitigation, health, technology, and many more.

Back to back with the Awarding Ceremonies, a short forum entitled “Engaging the Youth for Environmental Sustainability” will take place in order to discuss different avenues in which the youth can contribute to lasting solutions for our country’s most pressing problems – through the lens of technopreneurship, economics and industry, as well as government.
