Essay Competition: "My street in the city of the future"

Essay Competition: "My street in the city of the future"

Deadline for participating: 10.06.2020

In reference to the general theme of the City Street4 Conference (CS4), the My street in the city of the future Essay Competition invites entries to document your street/streets in a near or distant future.

Do you think the streets will be clean, green, full of cyclist, pedestrians and people who like to spend time and socialize outside? Or do you think that streets will become open spaces with robots cleaning them while people will use them only to drive in all sorts of new self-driving (autonomous) or even flying vehicles for example? Can the control of the drones and cameras in the future affect people’s habits in the streets? Do you have some ideas how young people can participate to make city streets better in the future?
