Photo Competition: Visions of the Urban Future
[14 May 2018] -- When it comes to today's economic, social and environmental challenges, cities are regarded as both a cause and solution. In the last two years, the international community has adopted a global roadmap for sustainable cities, the New Urban Agenda.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change likewise treat cities as important actors in the transformation towards a sustainable future. adelphi is addressing visions of future urban development, and is working on a global empirical project on urban visions and utopias.
Adelphi wants to show that ideas about the future of urban development and cities exist in a variety of places around the world in the minds of a broad range of people. This project, Urban Futures, focuses on people – the city as a social space, rather than technological innovations for future mobility, sustainable construction and networked infrastructure.
As part of this project, Adelphi invites photographers around the world to engage creatively with the topic “city as a social space” and to submit their photographs by 30 June 2018.
An international jury will select winning photographs to be presented at a public exhibition at the end of 2018. Furthermore, they will appear in the “Urban Visions” publication as well as on the Urban Futures global platform.
