World Challenge 2011 – Innovative Ideas for the Benefit of the World!

World Challenge is a competition organized by the BBC and Newsweek. It is aimed at finding projects or small businesses from around the world which have shown innovation and enterprise, and are helping the local community while preserving the environment.

Their basic criteria are:
·         Innovative projects or ideas that demonstrate an entrepreneurial spirit working for the benefit of the community whilst adopting a responsible approach.
·         Projects/small businesses that show initiative, the innovative use of technology or an invention.
·         Projects/small businesses that increase investment into the local community.
·         Projects/small businesses that take a responsible approach to the environment in which they are operating.

There are 10 nominations form 10 countries, all of which are worthy candidates. Please take some time to have a look at them, and maybe vote for your favorite. The more important thing would be to see how some of these innovative ideas can be adapted to tackling similar problems in Sri Lanka.
