“Visions of the Urban Future”

Photo competition: “Visions of the urban future”

adelphi, the independent think tank and leading public policy consultancy on climate, environment and development, invites you to take part in a photo competition on the theme of “Visions of the urban future”.
The world of tomorrow will be an urban one. Urbanisation is one of the defining trends of our time. The urban population is growing steadily, and its need for natural resources is increasing. By 2050, more than three quarters of the world’s population will live in cities.
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.

We want to show what 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 is focused not so much on technological innovations for future mobility, sustainable construction and networked infrastructure, but rather on people – the city as a social space. People shape their lives in very different ways, which is also reflected at the spatial level. Public places can be used by various social milieus at different times; urban society is made up of a variety of social spaces.

Formulating a positive, radically rethought, environmentally sound and above all social vision of the future city and redesigning democratic participation are paramount in this competition.

We invite photographers to engage creatively with this theme, and to submit their photographs by 30 June 2018. adelphi will announce the results of the international competition on its website in late July, and will inform the winners by email.
An international jury will judge the submitted works. The winning photographs will be presented to the public at adelphi’s premises at an opening event, and will appear in the “Urban Visions” publication as well as on the Urban Futures global platform. The winner will be invited to the opening event in Berlin.
