Urban Innovation Challenge / by Kevin Hsu

The Human Cities Initiative has launched the Urban Innovation Challenge: Life of the Future Citizen, in collaboration with Stanford Professionals in Real Estate (SPIRE) and the Counselors of Real Estate (CRE).

The challenge taps into Stanford’s creative potential to address critical social challenges. By focusing innovation on urban-centered social, infrastructure, and policy questions, we challenge the Stanford community to support the ongoing global effort to imagine and remake cities into more human-friendly places to live, work, play—and to celebrate our common urban future.

Finalists will present at the 2016 Global Cities in an Era of Change conference, in front of an international panel of judges, in March.

Showcase your idea for improving the life of the future citizen! Pitch your idea to an international group of city leaders, urban planning/real estate professionals, and change-makers at the 2016 "Global Cities in an Era of Change" conference at Stanford University.
