You are young, interested in questions of urban sustainability and studying or working in a related field?

What counts is not only the topic but also the way you present it. The winner will be identified by the audience and be awarded by the European Forum Alpbach.
We have already invited some of your competitors: Representatives of well known European architecture agencies will join you in the slam – will you accept the challenge?
Your contributions should focus on questions around sustainable cities, for example: the future of traffic, urban adaption to climate change, sustainable consumption and cittàslow, the urban ecological footprint, aspects of local de-growth, ecosystem services in urban environments etc.
In order to take part, send your CV and a brief exposé (approx. 300 words, PDF format) about your idea/ project and the way you want to present it, to the European Forum Alpbach by 30 April, 2013.
