Urban SOS: hOUR City – Global Student Competition

Presented by AECOM and Van Alen Institute, with 100 Resilient Cities — pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation, hOUR City is this year’s Urban SOS™ student ideas competition.

The organizers are asking students to propose new solutions to tackle housing, transportation, or economic development challenges and to re-imagine what a future “hour city” boundary can be.

A total of $15,000 in prize money will be distributed among the finalist teams, and the winning team will receive up to $25,000 of in-kind support from AECOM to implement a pilot of their proposal.

Students must form a multidisciplinary team of two to five members to enter, and include students from two disciplines at a minimum.

Entrants must be enrolled in a certified program during the 2017-2018 academic year to participate.

Four juries comprised of industry leaders in Hong Kong, London, New York and Sydney will review submissions and select finalists to advance to a final presentation in Los Angeles in January 2018.
