Reinventing Cities is a global competition organized by C40 to drive carbon neutral and resilient urban regeneration around the world. When the competition launched at the end of 2017, 15 cities proposed 40 different sites for redevelopment and reuse.

The first results of Phase 1 of the Reinventing Cities competition are in, and they are promising. The competition received more than 230 creative proposals across 33 sites – and more are expected in the coming months.

More than 1,200 different companies and organizations joined at least one bidder team. Together they have formed creative multi-disciplinary teams of investors, developers, architects, environmental experts, start-ups, civil organizations, and artists.

C40 and the participating cities will select the finalist teams in the coming months, and the final phase of the competition is due to start in September.

Reinventing Cities is made possible by support from Climate-KIC and OFO. Learn more on the competition website:
