Smart Living Challenge - A global search for sustainable innovation is an open international innovation competition designed to generate business opportunities and ideas that foster a sustainable lifestyle in urban environments. This could be products, services and solutions that will make it easier for individuals to live smarter and more sustainable lives.
The SLC innovation contest is presented by the Swedish Institute, and is open to anyone interested in presenting ideas on how to make daily life more sustainable. Today, a growing majority of the global population lives in cities. This trend is bringing new challenges in terms of housing, transport and food supply. New knowledge, creativity and rapid technological advance offer a means of finding and developing tomorrow’s smart solutions. The idea is to use the technology, innovative drive and competence at our disposal to encourage the development of urban lifestyles in which sustainable solutions are both attractive and profitable. Solutions where design and technology, nature and efficiency go hand in hand.
