Inspiring bold, replicable innovations developed by cities
Cities are uniquely positioned to foster creative solutions to our most pressing social and economic issues and to meet the challenges of tomorrow in areas from education to public safety. But the process requires enormous creativity, the formation of energetic partnerships, and the judicious use of data. Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Mayors Challenge is a competition designed to spark innovative, replicable ideas for improving cities, and the lives of people living in them, by encouraging leaders to think outside the box about how to confront their most difficult challenges.
