Around the world, rural, suburban, and isolated urban communities are left behind by the global economy. The Van Alen Institute is seeking ideas to better connect these areas to the social and economic opportunities in cities.
The proposals could address immigrant or elderly communities in car-dependent areas; underemployed residents in low-income neighborhoods; workers commuting long-distances to their jobs, or splitting time between distant cities and their home villages; families who can't afford to stay in cities with rising housing prices or who lack decent housing in informal settlements. You can take on any number of timely and urgent issues to offer people better options for where to live, how to move around, and how to make a living.
The deadline for registration is July 31, 2017.
