PORT MORESBY – Papua New Guinea’s Travel4Green (T4G) project has been selected amongst 15 candidates to participate in the green entrepreneur program run by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI).

Of the 164 applicants T4G’s entry in the Green City category saw it selected for the Greenpreneurs 2020 program!

The successful candidates are from Cambodia, Colombia, Ethiopia, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Mongolia, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Rwanda, Uganda (two), and the United Arab Emirates.

Applicants were required to submit their green start-up ideas within one of three categories: Sustainable Energy, Sustainable Landscapes or Green Cities.

Now, the final 15 Greenpreneurs will consult with their mentors and subject matter experts in their project field and participate in a series of online learning modules and webinars.

After this preparation phase, they will present their business plans to a panel of judges.

Three finalists will then be selected to win $5,000 (K17,000) of small-scale seed funding to develop their ideas into full-scale green businesses to benefit local communities.

Greenpreneurs is a cost-free 12-week virtual incubator supporting young people to develop social enterprise solutions that address sustainability and climate change issues in their communities.

Seeing this report of a project with an objective in the spectrum of sustainability, it did touch upon my curiosity.

My hope is for an encouraging outcome for PNG folk, even more, that a rising tide of respect is forthcoming for T4G and for all those working toward similar ecological goals.

It is pleasing also to see a report of one group working on growth at the very (tidal) edge of PNG land.
