The competition’s theme, “Green with Love, Smart without Obstacles,” highlights the key opportunities and difficulties facing contemporary urban development, specifically the inclusion of people with disabilities, the advancement of accessibility, and environmental preservation. The Competition asks participants to share their thoughts on how innovative approaches at both the theoretical and practical levels can improve accessibility and sustainability in cities.
