Youth, Health and Cities
- 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.
