3rd CODATU Photo Competition: “Smart & Sustainable Mobility for Happy Citizens”

& Sustainable Mobility for Happy Citizens”

For the third consecutive year, CODATU offers to amateur photograhers worldwide to sumbit pictures which challenge us to re-think urban mobility and emphasize on the importance of urban transport to ensure a sustainable urban development.

This year, the Photo Competition insists both on:

  • the role of Public Authorities in making citizens “happy” and insure a collective welfare, through Smart and Sustainable mobility tools;
  • Smart mobility as an essential tool for a sustainable development, but also as an element of debate regarding the environmental and health impacts which new technologies can have.

The competition has been launched on June 27th, 2017. Participants will be able to submit their photos until 25th September, 2017 midnight (CET), using the application form (see below).
