C40 STUDENTS REINVENTING CITIES
Buenos Aires joined 17 global cities in an initiative that will allow students and universities from all over the world to share their vision to reinvent a part of the City under ecological and sustainable axes.
The Students Reinventing Cities Competition, organized by the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, is dedicated to transforming cities to address the climate crisis by generating active collaboration with academia. The competition seeks to drive the creation of new ideas and innovative solutions that help decarbonize city neighborhoods, as well as support prosperous and resilient living for local communities.
To that end, the participating cities - Addis Ababa, Amman, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Copenhagen, Curitiba, Freetown, Guadalajara, Johannesburg, Lisbon, London, Los Angeles, Rome, El Salvador, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Toronto & Wuhan. - have identified different urban sites (small neighborhoods, blocks or main streets, among others) on which the students will have to work to generate their revitalization proposals.
The site chosen by Buenos Aires for this competition is a neighborhood full of life and identity. From Study Buenos Aires, as part of our work to improve the students' experience, we invite them to take an active role in the actions that generate this improvement of the quality of life in the city and submit proposals for the reconversion of this space. The call is aimed at multidisciplinary teams, formed by students of urban planning, architecture and environment, as well as business, engineering, real estate development and related careers. Winners will be invited to present their projects to business leaders, officials and climate organizations.
Teams have until March 2024 to register and June 2024 to submit their projects; deadlines may vary for certain cities. Join the contest launch webinar on December 12 for more information on how to participate.
