Fit City Competition Asks Young People To Submit Their Ideas

Fit City Competition Asks Young People To Submit Their Ideas

Oxford Health Alliance

The Fit City competition, sponsored by the Oxford Health Alliance, is an international competition for young people designed to provoke thought and discussion about the impact that urban environments have on our health.

We are looking for young people, aged 18-27, to submit their ideas or examples that demonstrate aspects of healthy urban environments or healthy urban design. Submissions may include photos, videos, songs, sounds, drawings, art, designs, writing, or anything else that can be submitted electronically. Examples that demonstrate aspects of unhealthy urban environments or design will also be accepted.

After the competition closes on 11 December 2007, the top 5 entries will be selected and the winners will be awarded a trip to Sydney, Australia, in February 2008, where they will be given the opportunity to showcase their submissions, and the submissions of their peers, at the annual global summit of the Oxford Health Alliance. Winners will also meet leading thinkers and activists from health, design, business, government and civil society.
