XPRIZE Community members advised on the design of a prize to transform housing and communities.
About the Prize Design
The Charter Communities Prize Design is an ambitious initiative that aims to identify transformative breakthroughs, with the purpose of incentivizing individuals and groups to implement them. Crafted as the winning concept at XPRIZE’s Visioneering 2019, the Charter Communities XPRIZE was envisioned by visionary artist, producer, songwriter, philanthropist and entrepreneur Pharrell Williams and supported by the Andrew Nikou Foundation and philanthropists like Paresh Ghelani.
This project uses multiple methodologies to assess the current landscape of public and affordable housing, in order to ensure we design a Charter Communities prize that can drive scalable innovation to create transformational public housing alternatives that will provide a self-sustaining life beyond subsidized housing.
The final product of this process of researching and discussions, the Prize Design, will provide the outline of what the winning team must accomplish to be awarded the prize.
Join this online community of experts to get involved, and share your wisdom with the crowd!
Millions of people across America, and the world, struggle with access to equitable housing. Affordable housing is a challenge that prevents many from pursuing the opportunity to achieve their goals and live life to its fullest potential; access to a safe, healthy place to live is a basic human right and an essential element of productivity.
How can we turn this challenge into a chance to give millions a healthier, supportive environment that will lift them up both at home, and in their communities?
We are designing an XPRIZE that can drive scalable innovation to create transformational public housing alternatives that will provide a self-sustaining life beyond subsidized housing.
The Prize Design will provide the outline of what the winning team must accomplish to be awarded the prize and define the parameters of the XPRIZE competition. It is audacious, yet achievable.
The community is currently debating the challenges and opportunities associated with creating transformational public housing alternatives.
We invite you to join us and other experts from around the world to share your wisdom with the crowd and advise us on the design of this XPRIZE Charter Communities Prize Design!
