Liveable Cities Challenge Launch

by Guillermo M. Luz, Published on October 16, 2019

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. This first Challenge is a design competition covering four selected aspects essential to building sustainable, resilient, and competitive cities: Mobility, Resilience, GovTech, and Basic Services.

The Liveable Cities Challenge is open to all 145 Highly-Urbanized and Component Cities in the Philippines. Cities may choose to compete in more than one category by submitting different entries.

The Challenge will run for 90 days from November 2019 to end-January 2020. Entries will be reviewed by a Screening Committee and shortlisted for presentations and pitches to a Board of Judges in February 2020.

To assist cities competing in the Challenge, a pool of Mentors from industry and professional experts will be made available to provide advise and coaching. Design tools will also be made available to universities which form part of city teams in the competition.

Labs and workshops will also be conducted to provide more technical assistance for cities.

We are now receiving applications up to 30 October 2019.

We look forward to having your city join the Liveable Cities Challenge as we work together to create sustainable, resilient, and competitive Liveable Cities.
