Dear list subscribers,

Some of your will be interested in knowing about the following urban design ideas competition and charrette, with associated exhibition. You may also find that you have people in your personal and professional networks that would like to know about this. The opportunity is OPEN TO ALL, so please feel free to distribute the message below widely.


How can the future design and configuration of cities promote greater sustainability in the conditions of urban life? Dust to Dust: Redesigning Urban Life in Healthy Soils* is an urban design ideas competition, supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We invite ideas for urban designs, planning approaches, and concrete interventions that could be implemented in real-life situations. Successful designs will be exhibited to inform and inspire more sustainable future urban design and development, accounting for a close relationship between urban life and soil ecosystem services.

Dust to Dust will operate as a charrette, held at the Prince's Foundation, London on 16-18 July 2018. Everyone is welcome to apply. To compete for a place in the charrette, teams should apply by developing and submitting outline ideas by 23:59 GMT on Wednesday 9th May 2018.

For more information about the competition, and to submit outline ideas, please visit our website:
