Open Call: AECOM's 2015 Urban SOS Student Competition

In collaboration with the Van Alen Institute and 100 Resilient Cities, AECOM has announced its international Urban SOS: All Systems Go competition for undergraduate and graduate students.

The competition “calls on multidisciplinary teams of students to envision more resilient food, water, and energy systems for supplying cities and regions today and in the future.” Teams should “identify an urban population facing the possibility of disruption to its food, energy, or water systems, and offer strategies that strengthen these systems’ ability to withstand future shocks or stresses, while also making them more efficient, equitable, and accessible to diverse populations.” All “proposals must be located in one of 67 cities that currently make up the 100 Resilient Cities network.”

Submissions will be accepted until August 21, after which three finalists will be announced September 17. The short-listed finalists will present their proposals in October 2015 at the A + D Museum in Los Angeles, and “jurors will award $15,000 in prizes, which may be divided among one or more teams.”
