Hack the City Wayfinding challenge

The question:
How can we make getting around congested Cambridge easier and cleaner?

 

The challenge:
Find your way across Cambridge sustainably – on foot, bike and bus – then use your journey experience to come up with new ideas for navigating the city.

Cambridge is congested with over 206,000 cars commuting in and out daily, and plans for 35,000 new houses in the area over the next 15 years - putting more pressure on the road network, increasing pollution levels and affecting people’s health.

The challenge to make navigating the city easier and cleaner, using sustainable modes of transport, has been set by the Smart Cambridge programme as part of the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s ‘Big Conversation’ to discuss future solutions for getting around the city and surrounding areas.

Supported by Cambridge Association of Architects in collaboration with Cambridge Hack, the one day event on Saturday 25 November will bring together techies, residents, planners and business people to work in teams, using their expertise and local knowledge to come up with innovative ideas.

Starting at Cambridge rail station at 9am, the teams have up to three hours to get to the Bradfield Centre on Cambridge Science Park, calling at the Guildhall in the city centre along the way and gathering evidence to develop their ideas to present to the judges in the afternoon.

The competition will be judged on the day by a panel of experts, with prizes for the best wayfinding idea using maps/information/signs; the best digital wayfinding idea and the best creative wayfinding solutions.

You can read full details about the challenge on our News pages here.
