Competition Guidelines for Participating Cities (Liveable Cities Challenge 2020)
There are four entry categories: Resilience, Mobility, GovTech, and Basic Services. Cities may pick one or more categories to submit entries to and compete in.
Cities will be divided into two groups: Component Cities and Highly Urbanized Cities. Entries will compete within these two groups.
University and college students are invited to participate in the Liveable Cities Challenge by joining cities that have signed up for the design challenge and competition. In order to enable the cities in planning and designing their solutions for the Liveable Cities Challenge, Dassault Systemes will be providing design and project management software to students who agree to join city teams.
In line with the launching of the challenge and to gear up cities with the right knowledge and information in designing solutions for their entries, we will be conducting our first Liveable Cities Lab on 16 March 2020 at Globe Tower, Bonifacio Global City.

We are pleased to announce the launching of the Liveable Cities Challenge. The Challenge is a series of competitions among cities to see who can design the best solutions to address a specific problem or "pain point" of their city.

The Philippines has had a spotty record of urban planning. What started out as beautifully master-planned cities generations ago have ended up as cities characterized by congestion and traffic, little or poor access to mass transit, few open spaces, parks and public spaces, and many blighted and derelict sections. And yet we’ve also seen some areas beautifully planned and built out in different parts of the country. Whether by design or accident, the parts that have become “liveable” are thriving, booming and driving growth.
Building local competitiveness is essential to enhance long-term national competitiveness. Last July, we re-launched the Liveable Cities Challenge (LCC) with the goal to help cities develop comprehensive, replicable, and implementable solutions to improve their liveability while strengthening local communities in the process.
