Van Alen Institute and AECOM have launched Fair Share, a student design competition inviting multidisciplinary teams from around the world to apply the tools and principles of the “sharing economy” to tackle pressing urban challenges.
As digital natives, today’s students are adapting to the sharing economy faster than any other demographic. The seventh edition in the Urban SOS series, Fair Share challenges multidisciplinary teams of students to create a new generation of digital innovations combined with physical design strategies to improve how cities provide housing, open space, transportation, jobs, care, and many other services and resources.
Teams can include up to four members, and must include students from two disciplines at a minimum (such as design, engineering, business, technology, public health, policy studies, economics, sociology, international development, social entrepreneurship or any other relevant fields). You can locate your proposal in any of the cities within the 100 Resilient Cities network. You must be enrolled in a certified program during the 2016 academic year at Bachelors, Masters, or Ph.D. levels to enter.
