How can we make cities more sustainable?

Experiencing new technologies and digitization hands-on while making the world a better and more sustainable place – sounds good to you? Then you should check out the SustAIn Challenge!

The SustAInble Cities Community Challenge looks at one of the big issues of our time: How to make cities more inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable in times of accelerated urbanization and overpopulation, otherwise known as UN Sustainable Development Goal #11. Participants will be provided learning assets – Artificial Intelligence and Sustainability – as well as a unique data as the basis for developing an investment thesis & building prototypes and solutions.

The COVID 19 pandemic has shown just how vulnerable cities are, with over 90% of COVID cases coming from urban centers. It has additionally exacerbated existing issues and inequalities. For all of us to survive and prosper, we need new, intelligent urban planning that creates safe, affordable, and resilient cities with green and culturally inspiring living conditions.

‍Data-driven and sustainable planning will be a key factor in increasing the quality of life in cities – reducing air pollution, better public transportation and mobility, overcrowding and health issues, and public safety – and in mitigating future pandemics or disasters. This is a sustainability issue looking for a tech-based business-solution.

Reports estimate current spending on smart cities at 130$ Bn. We meet at the intersection of Sustainability, Entrepreneurship and Tech – where the greatest positive impact can happen.

Strengthen your digital competence, expand your professional network and secure the chance to win prize money! For taking part in the SustAIn Challenge, you will receive a certificate from WU Vienna and are eligible for 5 ECTS points towards your university!

Join The Challenge in creating solutions for a #bettertomorrow and experience collaborative and challenge-based learning with Tomorrow’s Education.
