About C40 Cities and Reinventing Cities

Initiated by the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group and made possible thanks to the support of Climate KIC, Reinventing Cities is a global competition that seeks to transform underutilized sites through sustainable and community-focused projects to drive decarbonised and resilient urban regeneration. To amplify the success of the first competition, C40 is now enabling cities to continuously join Reinventing Cities with new sites, to create an ongoing and dynamic competition and to catalyse systemic change. Today, C40 is launching 25 new sites to be reinvented in 9 cities: Cape Town, Chicago, Dubai, Madrid, Milan, Montreal, Reykjavik, Roma and Singapore. Through this competition, C40 and the participating cities invite multi-disciplinary teams of architects, planners, developers, entrepreneurs, environmentalists, start-ups, neighbourhood collectives, innovators and artists to submit proposals which deliver carbon neutral and resilient urban regeneration, and can serve as a model for city landmarks of the future.
