Cheryl Seah from the College of the Arts in Singapore was recently awarded a Future lions Award for her unique approach to reducing deforestation.

The idea uses an app which matches a person’s fingerprint with a tree that has a similar print and allows the user to find out more about his or her tree and donate money to protect it.
