Yorkshire cities are in final 21 of 350 entries to a global brainstorming on urban living. Both are keen to have more suggestions to add to their portfolios
Sheffield and York are in with a chance of piloting new ideas for sustainable living via an international competition whose results will be announced in San Francisco in May next year.
Both cities join London on a final shortlist prepared by the Living Labs Global organisation's project Pilot the Future which initially looked at submissions from 350 places around the world.
Five will be picked to present their suggestions at San Francisco on practical ways of improving mobility, economic development, social inclusion, health and wellbeing, urban management, lighting, energy, culture, future government and sustainable lifestyles. Local people and institutions are now being asked for ideas to supplement those already being considered by Sheffield and York city councils.[view whole blog post ]
