Teams announced for final stage of Reinventing Cities competition

The teams selected to go through to the final of Reinventing Cities have been announced — the competition, organised by C40 and EIT Climate-KIC, aims to transform under-used city spaces into beacons of sustainability. 

Eighty-two teams from Auckland, Chicago, Houston, Madrid, Milan, Montréal, Oslo, Paris, Reykjavik, Salvador, San Francisco and Vancouver were selected from more than 230 expressions of interest from 1,200 companies and organisations across the globe. 

Hundreds of innovative solutions have been proposed, including creative solutions for energy; new types of material for construction; solutions to implement the circular economy and zero-waste approaches; urban farming and local food production ideas; and many new services to engage citizens and communities toward greener ways of living.

These teams of architects, urban planners, entrepreneurs and neighbourhood collectives will compete in the final round of the competition to transform empty plots and abandoned buildings, historical mansions, underused car parks, and former industrial sites into new beacons of sustainability and resilience.

Sean Lockie, Director of Urban Transitions, EIT Climate-KIC said: “It has been fantastic to see such a broad and exciting range of entries to this city-led programme. We are looking forward to continuing our work with the C40 team and the cities that are participating to catalyse real change on the ground.”

Reinventing Cities, an unprecedented global competition to drive carbon neutral and resilient urban regeneration was launched in November 2017. The competition is designed to serve as a model for cities around the world, demonstrating how the alliance between cities and business can shape the future delivering healthier, greener and economically viable urban development.

Led by C40 and supported by EIT Climate-KIC, the competition saw each participating city organise a selection committee, based on common selection criteria, which favoured creative teams and ambitious climate solutions. In addition to funding support, EIT Climate-KIC helped shape the design of the international competition and supported C40 in attracting project partners, as well as utilise its network to help mobilise interest from the private sector.

C40 and 12 participating cities now announce the shortlisted teams that have been selected to participate in the final phase of the Reinventing Cities competition.

“The response to the Reinventing Cities competition has been incredible, with architects, designers, community and citizen groups submitting some truly thrilling proposals,” said, Mark Watts, Executive Director, C40. “The shortlisted teams will now develop detailed proposals and we can soon look forward to the sustainable reinvention of these sites in cities around the world.”

The final submissions are expected early 2019 and the winning team for each site will be announced by May 2019.

Below you can find the full list of the selected teams.
