Citopia, MOBI's Phase II of the Grand Challenge, is launching today in New Delhi

Building on the success of Phase I, Phase II – Citopia – explores new solutions for human mobility to create smarter and greener cities while improving quality of life. The MOBI Grand Challenge (MGC) envisions a tokenized Citopia ecosystem where city governments work with employers, schools, universities, and local businesses to create incentives for changing behavior to build smarter cities.

Tokens earned for participating in the ecosystem can be exchanged for goods or services donated by local business or government agencies, or donated to a charity of choice. Congestion pricing can easily be incorporated into token reward structures to reduce peak demand for mobility, or even electricity and water. In Citopia, gamification, tokenization, and fun competitions create powerful individual and collective incentives for socially responsible behavior.

Citopia submissions will promote the creation of greener and smarter cities through congestion pricing, carbon footprint management, parking, usage-based payments for infrastructure, multi-model transit, data exchange, and micro-payments.

A Global Challenge on the Global Stage

The second phase of the MOBI Grand Challenge showcases global judges who play mission-critical roles across public and private sectors and municipalities. A preview of the judges panel: the City of Seattle, City of Los Angeles, City of Singapore, EU representatives, Architects from the US Department of Transportation’s 2015 Smart Cities Challenge, Enterprise Singapore, R3, Toyota Mobility Foundation, World Economic Forum, and further more. 

Prize sponsors for Citopia’s top three winners count the support of these generous organizations: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Ocean Protocol, R3, and BitGreen.
Growing prize additions will be announced throughout the course of the challenge.

Submissions will be judged on the following categories: Creativity, Technical Merit, Potential Impact, and Feasibility.
