HUMAN CITIES CHALLENGE

Stanford and other NYC-based university students are invited to participate in the Human Cities Challenge, an intensive 72-hour studio experience where they will collaborate with local government officials, private sector, non-profit organizations, and university partners to explore a human-centered approach to the development of smart cities. The challenge will involve an introduction to the problem definition on Day 1, in-depth field observations and interviews on Day 2, and a final showcase where students pitch their concept on Day 3. Final deliverables from the Human Cities NYC challenge will be compiled in a publication and will be part of a four-part series involving Beijing, New York, and two other cities in the world.
