This Year's Theme: The Power of Public Spaces

[May-16] Your challenge: Create a distributed network of innovative, multiuse public spaces that serves your city's diverse population.

Public spaces, both small and large, indoors and outside, not only make an urban area more attractive and more livable, they also serve as an anchor that benefits cities in a variety of ways: revitalizing the economy by introducing new businesses and bringing in new visitors, reducing crime, improving pedestrian safety, promoting healthy living, and improving the environment. In fact, a recent study by the UN-Habitat's Global Urban Observatories Unit found that cities that devoted about 50% of their space to public use tended to be more prosperous and have a higher quality of life.
