PLANETARY URBANISM – CRITIQUE OF THE PRESENT
In the medium of information design.
The Federal Foreign Office supports projects around the globe that enhance knowledge about climate change, its causes and consequences. Our focus is on countries that are key actors in climate change, as well as on countries that are particularly challenged by climate change.
The international competition Planetary Urbanism is one of our worldwide projects. It is designed to encourage decision makers, students and citizens to rethink urbanisation, thus creating awareness of climate change in the context of urban living and possibly providing solutions.
The competition is awarded by ARCH+ Journal for Architecture and Urbanism and consulted by the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU).
Registration is open from 1 December 2014 to 1 July 2015 on the ARCH+ website. Submissions must be received by 15 July 2015. The prize money is 20,000 Euro. For further information please see http://www.archplus.net/home/planetaryurbanism
