1.Like a first step you need to choose from the following topi:
• Rapid Urbanisation - the explosion in numbers of people moving from country to city means there is an ever-increasing demand on services, infrastructure, housing, and transportation systems.
• Resource Scarcity - how can cities be built or upgraded to be ecologically responsible, with a low carbon footprint, and resistant to the growing threat and frequency of extreme weather conditions caused by global warming?
• Climate Change - rapid population growth puts a huge strain on vital resources such as clean water, electricity and food. How will we power our homes, put food on the table and have access to clean water in the future?
2.Second step you need to select the city you’d most like to create a solution for.
Organiser are looking for exciting, innovative ideas that help solve Rapid Urbanisation, Resource Scarcity and Climate Change. The judges will rate your idea based on impact, excitement, scale, relevance and feasibility.
The best entries will be shortlisted in June 2018.
An international judging panel will select the final winner from the shortlisted applicants in November 2018.
There is no entry fee for this competition!
