International Student Contest: The Challenges of Urbanisation

Managing urban growth has become one of the most important challenges of the 21st century. In the world today, what kind of urbanisation will nurture sustainable growth and development? The Geneva Challenge invites master students from all academic programmes to provide helpful strategic recommendations.

The idea is to gather contributions that are both theoretically grounded and offer pragmatic solutions to a relevant international development problem stemming from an interdisciplinary collaboration between 3 to 5 enrolled master students from anywhere in the world.

The Geneva Challenge 2016 will distribute 17’500 CHF in monetary prizes and the finalists will be invited to publicly present their work in Geneva before a panel of high-level experts. Networking and publication opportunities are also envisioned as part of the prize package.
