Philips Livable CitiesUpdate 28 December 2011: The winner and two runners-up of the Philips Livable Cities Award have started their projects. You can follow the progress of the recipients – from Yemen, Argentina and Uganda – as they document their process on their blog and video diary.

The Philips Livable Cities Award is a “global initiative designed to generate innovative, meaningful and achievable ideas to improve the health and well-being of city-dwellers across the world”. The awardees received grants that will allow them to bring their ideas to life, improving the livability within their local communities.

As winner, Sabrina Faber from Sana’a, Yemen has received a €75,000 grant to implement an innovative solution for water shortage in Sana’a. The challenge addresses the residents dependency on the polluted water supply due to the shortage, often leading to infection among the young and elderly. Faber’s solution proposes the use of existing flat rooftop structures to capture, filter and store rainwater. The integration of cisterns would provide residents with 10,000 to 50,000 liters of clean, dependable water for domestic use annually.

29 April 2011: On 28 April 2011 Royal Philips Electronics announced the winners. The overall winner of the Award, announced at a gala ceremony held at the world famous Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, was Sabrina Faber from Sana’a, Yemen, for her idea `Rainwater Aggregation in Sana’a’.

A new featured group on the professional social networking site LinkedIn has been established to facilitate an issues-driven discussion among people interested in making cities more healthy and livable places.

17 April 2011: Royal Philips Electronics announced the eight finalists selected for the Philips Livable Cities Award, a global initiative designed to generate practical, achievable ideas for improving the health and well-being of city-dwellers across the world.

The winners will be revealed on April 27, and will be awarded three grants totaling €125,000 (€75,000 for the overall winner, with two additional winners receiving grants of €25,000 each).

“The Award judging panel had a difficult task selecting the finalists from more than 450 ideas submitted from 29 countries around the world, given the high quality of entries received,” commented Richard Florida, Professor, Author and Chair of the Philips Livable Cities Award expert panel. “Having conducted a rigorous review, the panel is excited by the breadth of thinking displayed by the final eight which demonstrated the innovation necessary to help ensure the future livability and prosperity of our cities.”

The eight finalists represent a truly global picture of the issues faced by city-dwellers across the world, from a proposed street park project in Argentina to a rainwater aggregation scheme in Yemen. The other finalists include a health education initiative for deaf children in Kenya, a neighborhood network scheme in Nigeria, shade stands in Uganda, a digital networking tool in the UK, and two schemes from the USA—a smart grid athletic light and a design-your-own-park project.

Philips is inviting members of the public to assist the Philips Livable Cities Award judging panel in selecting the overall winner by voting for their favorite finalist until March 24. By casting a vote for their favorite entry, there’s also the chance to win a place at the Award ceremony in Amsterdam to join the celebrations.
