The World Challenge 2011: Put in your vote

Article by Aba H

The World Challenge is initiated by the BBC in association with Shell with the aim of awarding innovative initiatives across the globe that contribute to lives of communities, environmental sustainability etc. 12 initiatives have been nominated and only one will win with two runner ups.

The initiatives represent simple but effective solutions to a common problem such as organisations converting left over food in Southern India into methane gas used to provide electricity and high quality fertiliser or a company in Uganda developing a charcoal stove which has extra insulation meaning that more food can be cooked using less coal.

Check out the videos for yourself and put in your vote at theworldchallenge.co.uk. Voting ends on 11 November 2011 so don’t waste any time!
