Liveable Cities Design Challenge is an annual urban planning and design competition for cities. Cities may choose from among the focus areas of the Challenge to design an entry for their city. Cities are required to establish competition teams headed by the Mayor and composed of city officials and local resources (citizens, professionals, and universities) from within their city. Cities may also tap into a roster of mentors developed by the Liveable Cities Philippines for additional expertise. Entries will be judged by a panel of experts and finalist.
