This year the competition has the aim of involving youth and international creative community in the concept of smart cities.
The Smart City project is certainly one of the most debated issues of the current historical period. Political programs, conventions, workshops, newspaper articles and magazines declaim and call for the arrival of Smart Cities and plead for a collective conscience with the objective of developing urban areas towards a new housing and participative model.
Our cities must become places of improvement and optimization of resources: expression of new attitudes and ideal habitat for a positive social contagion.
