COVID-19 Solutions: Tell Us Your Story

Calling Youth: Share the innovative ways you and your community have adopted to cope!

The Movement Control Order (MCO) since 18 March may have put many of us in a physical lockdown; but definitely not a creative one. We’re seeing all kinds of cool stuff and solutions happening on the ground. And its all pretty exciting lah.

So UNDP and UNICEF have come up with “Tell Us Your Story”. It’s solutions mapping campaign so you can share the innovative ways you and your community have adopted to cope with COVID-19 and the MCO.

Tell Us Your Story is open to anyone aged 13 years and above; and living in Malaysia. The top 10 submissions will get RM 100 worth of vouchers (please don’t forget to check the Terms and Conditions, ya).

Deadline is 31 May 2020. Here’s what you need to know to participate.
