Competition Theme

“Inclusive Workforce for a Sustainable Economy”

A sustainable economy is one that is not only strong and resilient, but also provides good quality jobs for everyone. An important aspect of building such an economy is to create a diverse and inclusive workforce, where everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed.

To encourage this, we are proud to launch this competition for students studying at Asia’s post-secondary vocational institutions and technical colleges. The competition challenges students to use technology to push the boundaries of what is possible for individuals with physical disabilities or other sensory impairments in the workplace.

Students should develop viable product solutions that empower people in the workplace, removing barriers to success and promoting a more diverse and inclusive culture.
