Today in conjunction with UN-Habitat, The Guardian is staging the very first Guardian World Cities Day Challenge, with 36 finalists taking the hot seat to show off their city’s best idea.
"Starting at 8am GMT and running until 4pm, each contestant will have 12 minutes in the hot seat to present their idea. From baths floating in the river, to a green zone around the city, to a network of connected cultural rooftops, the ideas are as varied as the cities they represent: from Tallinn to Calgary to Bhubaneswar. The Challenge is presented in conjunction with UN-Habitat, and we’ll feature the winner in an in-depth piece at Guardian Cities."
