With half of humanity living in cities, urban life is becoming more and more challenging: clogged up subways, huge amounts of waste or bad air quality are just a few of the issues city dwellers struggle with. Luckily, exceptional minds around the world are already coming up with inventions that can help us lead a sustainable life in urban jungles. These people have been able to make their ideas come alive in order to improve the quality of life for themselves and the people around them.
Help Siemens find these inventions and create a human story about one of them! As a global powerhouse in electronics and electrical engineering, Siemens strives to drive innovations in cities and wants you to participate in their think tank of ideas for sustainable cities. The growth of urban infrastructure is approaching its limits and eventually, the fight against climate change will be decided in cities. Contribute to the conversation about this important topic and share YOUR urban ideas with us in a touching, human story!
