C40 Reinventing Cities is a global competition which aims to transform underutilised urban sites into innovative, zero-carbon and resilient urban projects. The competition is a call for proposals that stimulate sustainable development and innovative solutions to environmental and urban challenges. The initiative invites creative professionals worldwide—including architects, planners, developers, investors, environmentalists, start-ups and more—to design and develop projects of the future.

About C40 Cities

C40 cities is a network of nearly 100 mayors of the world’s leading cities working to deliver the urgent action needed right now to confront the climate crisis and create a future where everyone, everywhere, can thrive. Mayors of C40 cities are committed to using a science-based and people-focused approach to help the world limit global heating to 1.5°C and build healthy, equitable and resilient communities. We work alongside a broad coalition of representatives from labour, business, the youth climate movement and civil society to support mayors to halve emissions by 2030 and help phase out fossil use while increasing urban climate resilience and equity. The current co-chairs of C40 are Mayor Sadiq Khan of London, United Kingdom, and Mayor Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr of Freetown, Sierra Leone; three-term Mayor of New York City Michael R. Bloomberg serves as President of the Board. C40’s work is made possible by our three strategic funders: Bloomberg Philanthropies, Children’s Investment Fund Foundation and Realdania.
