Access Cities is a Global Alliance for Sustainable Urban Development. Currently running in New York City, Munich, Singapore, and the two Danish cities of Copenhagen and Aarhus, the program aims to solve city problems through multi-stakeholder challenges and open innovation, as a way of accelerating technology and solution knowledge sharing between cities, and to offer better testing opportunities for vendors.
The event will take place during the week of the C40 Mayor’s Summit in Copenhagen, and will create direct matches between key challenge owners in the markets and global solution providers. City representatives from the project cities will post city challenges and the participants in the event will have the opportunity to speed date the city representatives in order to share knowledge and form initial connections.
In the fall 2019, Access Cities partnered with the City of Copenhagen to solve the pressing issue of air pollution and urban heat island effect in Copenhagen. At the event, you are invited to participate in the Pitch Final and Award Show. Here the finalists will be invited to deliver their final pitch to the judging panel consisting of high level representatives from the City of Copenhagen and prominent Danish companies.
