The City of Goods Challenge in Berlin

Written by

The City of Good Challenge will bring together 20 talented innovators with diverse backgrounds to co-create compelling new ways of leveraging the public transportation infrastructure to make goods delivery smart and sustainable. The deadline is on 28 September 2018.

The City of Goods Challenge will take place at The DO School campus, located in one of the world’s most dynamic and sustainability-focused capitals, Berlin from November 11 – 16, 2018. During the intense six-day program, participants will explore new approaches to sustainable city transport logistics. They will innovate, learn and connect in a diverse community of inspiring individuals.

Participants will receive an opportunity to develop concrete products, make lifelong connections with like-minded passionate peers and the chance to join our global community of purposeful Doers.

Online shopping is so convenient, yet so stressful on the transportation infrastructure and the environment. In Berlin, 2,450 vehicles deliver around 400,000 packages – a day. These delivery vans clog streets and bike lanes, create noise, and pollute the air.

How can buses, subways, and stations be used as part of the system to transport parcels to individuals and companies? And what role can BVG play in collaboration with traditional service providers and new crowd-delivery opportunities?

Main criteria

  • Individuals residing in Europe over the age of 18 are eligible to apply;
  • All backgrounds and nationalities are welcome. However, for this program, they can only accept applications from people already based in Europe;
  • Applicants must who have demonstrated a pioneering, creative spirit in fields such as – but not limited to – logistics, mobility, urban planning, engineering, shared economy, design, and technology.
