Over the course of the Urban Resilience Challenge, we'll be featuring highlights of contributions from each of our themed mission areas. This week, we've seen an incredible number of inspirations and thought-starters from our global community. As the Ideas Phase progresses, we would love for you to spread the word and invite organizations working within these focus areas to join the challenge!



Mission 1: Communication

Travelling Exhibition – A traveling exhibition that will strengthen the understanding of climate change in urban slums through active engagements between community stakeholders


Mission 2: Small-Scale Infrastructure

Turning Garbage into Trees – An initiative to fast track agricultural rehabilitation in typhoon-affected areas of the Philippines



Mission 3: Community

CommUno Library – A plan to build community centers in the Philippines for incubating social enterprises, installing green technology, and storing emergency equipment



Mission 4: Maximizing Limited Water Supply

Slum Rate Schedules – An initiative to provide access to clean water at subsidized rates for urban slum communities of Dhaka, Bangladesh



We’re looking forward to seeing your ideas for bringing resilience innovation to urban slum communities. Join the challenge to support communities as they adapt and transform to meet the challenges of climate change!
