Technology and Solution Award 2022

The objective of the Technologies and Solution Award is to explore the excellent “technologies” and “solutions” in promoting the sustainable development of cities and communities. The Award focuses on dealing with concrete problems and challenges in certain particular field of sustainable development and requires innovation and replicability.

TSA 2022 will continue to cover the many areas of building liveable communities, hoping to provide best toolkits and methodologies for the sustainable recovery of cities. The following themes of TSA are subject to further updates to better respond to the LivCom Forum and Technical Conference this year.
