STARTUP WEEKEND SINGAPORE
The world is changing; resources are depleting, sea levels are rising, the polar bears are losing their homes. We are losing culture as the world grows.

We are on a mission to create sustainability in today's capitalism where technology is running on scarce and limited resources.

Are you ready to impact the world and tackle the challenges of the climate crisis we are facing in our lifetime?

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it. But the truth is, only you have the power to save Mother Earth. This April, immerse yourself for 54 hours in a digital space with changemakers, innovators, technologists, believers, environmentalists and go-getters, and unite with your global community to bring forth a green revolution.

We need all the hands we have to save the world. Let's plant the seeds for a better tomorrow.

Protect Our Planet
Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on the natural resources on our planet. In today's world, green environmentalists are looking at different ways to repurpose materials and resources to live within the means of our natural resources. During our time in school, we learn about the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle). To build a sustainable tomorrow, we need to #RenewRepurposeRefresh -- renew our resources through technology, repurpose materials that are unused and refresh our environment with new ideas.

Align your ideas with the above SDGs (sustainable development goals)

Here are some ways to get you started:

-- Brainstorm ideas to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050

-- Chalk up proposals to tackle ocean acidity and conserve marine life

-- Find a new purpose for waste materials produced by manufacturing plants

-- Design creative solutions to tackle wildlife extinction, halt biodiversity loss, and optimise conservation efforts

-- Find ways to ensure availability of safe drinking water, especially for rural populations

-- Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable


Create A Better Society
We all want to live in a better society -- a society where there is no poverty, where everyone has access to quality education and healthcare, where no one has to worry about having food on their plate every day, and where gender doesn't determine opportunities. Put on your creative hats and help us design a society in which you would love to live in and one in which you would be proud to bring up your future generations.


Align your ideas with the above SDGs (sustainable development goals):

Here are some ways to get you started:


-- Design innovative practices to promote sustainable agriculture, end hunger, and achieve food security.

-- Harness the power of innovative technologies (such as blockchain) to break the vicious cycle of poverty.


-- Address today's most pressing issues in healthcare by leveraging the power of digital health, IoT, and Medtech solutions.


-- Promote inclusive learning and expand access to quality education for all.


-- Formulate ideas to stop domestic violence, increase opportunities for women in the corporate world, and achieve gender equality.


Promote Shared Prosperity
Building a sustainable world does not mean we stop economic development and prosperity. Rather, we should be looking to create sustainable economic models focussed on equitable distribution and efficient allocation of resources. By using resources in an efficient and responsible way, we can build businesses that not only generate short term profit but also don't create social or environmental issues that would harm the company's long-term success. The key is to focus on achieving sustainable profitability.


Align your ideas with the above SDGs (sustainable development goals):

Here are some ideas to get you started:


-- Generate ideas to hold corporations accountable for transparent accounting methods and good corporate governance.


-- Build resilient digital infrastructure to expand access to credit for small scale enterprises in developing countries.


-- Eradicate forced labour and modern slavery, promote full and productive employment and decent work for all.


-- Reduce inequality by empowering the most vulnerable groups such as refugees, elders, persons with disabilities etc.


-- Provide access to justice for all civilians and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions to promote peace and security.


-- Formulate strategies and build platforms to engage stakeholders, increase foreign direct investment, and revitalize global partnerships.

JOIN THE GREEN REVOLUTION FROM HOME
Pick your role for the weekend.
I'm a |
GREEN HUSTLER
You are an environmental campaigner, a go-getter, entrepreneur-like-mind, and know how to get things done using whatever (legal) means necessary and make this idea happen.

Incredibly resourceful & hardworking is your middle name. If you can pitch, market, dream up business models, or just simply game to do anything to keep the team running, you're a hustler through and through.
CREATIVE DESIGNER
You speak, breathe and you talk in terms of visual. You transform half-complete dreams to life with your 6 digit HEX-Code and visual editing softwares.

You make a simple excel sheet look like a fashion magazine, and transform pitch decks or prototypes from raw data into a phoenix.

If you have a flare for visuals and speak that language, we need your expertise to change the world.
PRO DEVELOPER
Coding is your first language, you convert caffeine into code, usually late into the night. You spend more time with your computer than you do with humans, but that's only because you build shit that other people can't.

Whether you excel in Ruby, Python, Go or any one of the coding languages (even no code!), this role is yours to claim.
