INTRO

As the world’s population becomes increasingly more urbanized, with the share of people living in cities amounting to 55% today and expected to increase to 68% by 20501, decarbonizing the cities and promoting new ways to live and design urban environments and public spaces will be fundamental in fighting the climate crisis.

Residents of just 100 cities are responsible for 20% of the carbon footprint production of all of humanity, and about one third of the city dwellers’ carbon footprint is mainly due to public transportation options and building infrastructure2.

BRIEF

Starting from in-depth research on trends and case studies related to cities that have already adopted services and solutions for reducing carbon dioxide emissions (e.g. from the promotion of new commuting solutions, to the adoption of natural based solutions to combat the climate crisis and regenerate the environment, to new practices for sharing energy within local communities, up to the adoption of policies and solutions for the transformation of the roofs of the city into new green areas), candidates will be asked to imagine an innovative service that can help reduce the carbon footprint of a city of their choice (this can be their city of origin or another city they know or have lived in).

The service will have to be imagined 5 years in the future. The envisioned service may contemplate physical and/or digital solutions and may consider the involvement of public or private stakeholders besides the involved Municipality.
