The annual Asia-Pacific Case Competition hosted by APRU and The New York Times harnesses the creativity and intellectual tenacity of students from universities to address critical global issues, such as the digital economy, the future of work, environmental changes, and the Pacific Ocean. This year’s theme is global health: Mortality attributed to household and ambient air pollution in the Asia-Pacific is higher than in the rest of the world, at 130 deaths per 100,000 population.
Write an 800-word policy brief to a leader in your economy (government, philanthropy, business, NGO, etc.) discussing the threats to health from air pollution. What are the solutions you promote? What are the resources necessary? What are the ways that this solution will make an impact? The winning entry will be published in The New York Times International, Asia Pacific edition.
Deadline for submissions: Monday, September 23, 2019.
