This Year's Theme: Age-Friendly Cities

[Aug-2017] This year's challenge asks participants to identify an age-related challenge that exists in today's urban environments and engineer two innovative solutions that allow their future city's senior citizens to be as active and independent as they want to be.

Today's senior citizens are living longer, staying in the workforce longer and contributing to their communities in a myriad of ways. But, still, aging has its problems. Addressing these challenges has become the focus of the World Health Organization and many cities throughout the world. Here in North Texas, city leaders in both Dallas and Fort Worth have approved age-friendly initiatives to make their communities more accessible and safe so that citizens can remain active and independent for as long as possible.
