Myanmar's Push for Climate Action: Heading to Falling Walls Lab Germany 2023
Myanmar's endeavor to tackle climate issues takes center stage with the title "Breaking the Wall of Climate Action with Green Schools." This distinctive title has been chosen to represent Myanmar at the upcoming Falling Walls Global Lab 2023 scheduled for November 7th in Berlin, Germany. The journey began at the Falling Walls Lab Myanmar event held on August 26, 2023.
Out of the 15 enthusiastic participants who presented their innovative ideas, the three women received the highest scores and secured top three places by impressing the judges with their compelling pitches. U Aung Thu Hein from Falling Walls Lab Myanmar shared that the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Myanmar office has been consistently organizing the Falling Walls Lab in Myanmar annually since 2016 and this year marks the seventh lab in the country.
The presentations encompassed a diverse range of topics including AI, Sustainable Food Technology, Sustainable Development, Health Care, Mental Health, and Safety concerns. Among these, the project that stood out was one that revolves around climate action through the concept of Green Schools. This idea clinched the spot for Myanmar in the 2023 lab.
In a departure from previous years where only the top winners were allowed to present their idea at the Global Lab, the top two performers of this year, both the winner and the runner-up, will be granted the opportunity to present their innovative concepts in Germany. Falling Walls Lab offers a remarkable platform for visionaries, researchers, and imaginative minds to share their revolutionary ideas on an international stage."
