Cities are key actors in efforts to respond to climate change. Over a decade of urban innovation and leadership has shown that meaningful action on climate change is possible. But with the climate crisis nearing critical thresholds, the type of action that we need to see has reached a new level. In urban areas old and new, we now face the inspiring challenge of creating a rapid transition to zero-carbon cities.
Smart technologies present us with powerful tools to apply to that challenge. We’ve seen impressive results in increasing the efficiency of building, infrastructure, and transportation systems. But more is possible, much more. This contest is open to all projects that propose innovative applications of smart technologies to the creation of zero-carbon cities.
