The Liveable Cities Design Challenge was first launched in the Philippines in 2014. 19 cities were selected to join the competition. Cities include those that hosted APEC Meetings in 2015 and other cities that are vulnerable to disasters. Cities or municipalities have committed to undergoing orientation and participating in workshops.
Today, the Liveable Cities Challenge (LCC) was launched at the League of Cities’ 63rd General Assembly at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas. The challenge was opened to all cities in the country.
LCC is a medium-term program (2016-2019) to promote and enable better urban planning and implementation for cities in the Philippines. The program will include a competition for design, financing, and implementation of urban projects in Resilience, Mobility, E-Government, and other aspects of urban life. It will also include regular Technical Workshops, Site Visits, Networking, and Technical Assistance provided through the Liveable Cities Challenge Consortium led by the National Competitiveness Council, League of Cities of the Philippines, Ayala Corporation and almost 20 other organizations and institutions.
