Unilever Topic Competition focuses on post-pandemic livelihoods

UTC is exclusive for all Enactus teams with programs that address the COVID-19 pandemic and projects that improve health, well-being, and the lives of people post COVID-19 pandemic.

On its sixth year of collaboration between Enactus Philippines and Unilever, the Unilever Topic Competition (UTC) on Sustainable Livelihoods was designed to recognize and reward Enactus Philippines teams that create and deliver programs aligned with the Unilever Sustainable Living Plan (USLP).

USLP is the company’s guiding principle in aiming to grow the business while increasing positive social impact. The competition encourages teams to work on new or existing Enactus projects in a way that creates holistic solutions to improving people’s livelihoods.

This year, Unilever Philippines is taking this competition a notch higher by challenging the participating teams to ensure that the livelihood programs are relevant to the post-COVID-19 environment. This is in line with Unilever’s thrust of providing livelihood in the most vulnerable communities.

The participating teams should focus on the following aspects:

1) consideration on the health and well-being, hygiene and safety, and food security of the community

2) importance of in-home use and consumption of resources, and

3) utilization of digital technology in executing and advocating for their programs.

“We remain committed to rebuilding livelihoods and communities during these times – we count Enactus Philippines as a trusted partner and platform for young minds to contribute their winning ideas. Together with the participants and Enactus, we can continue the journey to make sustainable living commonplace to all Filipinos,” shares Ed Sunico, vice president for Communications – Southeast Asia of Unilever.

UTC is exclusive for all Enactus teams with programs that address the COVID-19 pandemic and projects that improve health, well-being, and the lives of people post COVID-19 pandemic. The projects may be new or underway/continuing, but must have outcomes completed from January-March 2021. All entries will be jointly reviewed by Enactus Philippines and Unilever Philippines. Five (5) teams will be shortlisted and will advance to the Final Round of Competition, which will be announced on March 12, 2021.

Enactus Philippines Chairman Jose P. Leviste, Jr. believes that the UTC is both timely and relevant and would provide Enactus teams an opportunity to help address the COVID-19 pandemic in their respective communities through the power of entrepreneurship and innovation.
