Toyota Mobility Foundation launches Sustainable Cities Challenge!

The Toyota Mobility Foundation, in partnership with Challenge Works and World Resources Institute, launched the USD 9-million Sustainable Cities Challenge on 21st June 2023.

Cities across the globe are being invited to enter and get a chance to host one of 3 city-based open innovation competitions that will harness the power, creativity and energy of innovation to improve access to safe, equitable, and sustainable mobility solutions for all. The three winning cities will launch individual local City Challenges with up to $3 million in funding available for innovators by May 2024.

The Challenge entry requires cities to define a mobility problem(s) within their city according to one or more of the following themes:

  • Overcoming mobility barriers
  • Strengthening mobility systems
  • Advancing low carbon mobility

To learn more and apply, visit the Sustainable Cities Challenge website.  The deadline to apply is 18 September 2023. Ten Shortlisted Cities will be selected to receive a range of capacity building support to understand the issue they want to solve and attract innovators to provide solutions. In January 2024, three of the ten Shortlisted Cities will be selected to host City Challenges to attract innovators.
