SAs part of a competitive partnership with BMW Australia, RMIT students have created their own vision of what mobility could look like in the city of Melbourne by the end of this decade.
YourMelbourne tasks students with creating their own idea of the city in 2030 – considering the challenges of climate change, a growing population and the need for transport solutions. As part of this plan, they also had to work towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations General Assembly.
Entrants ranged from envisioning smart aviation methods to clean up Melbourne’s waterways and solving the growing problem of congestion, from revolutionizing floor coverings to enhance the comfort of personal mobility. So it got everything from designing the next-generation shared vehicle network.
BMW Group Australia CEO Wolfgang Buchel said he was impressed after reviewing the submissions.
“Seeing the future of our city through the vision of the next generation is incredibly inspiring,” Buchel said.
“Their forward-thinking ideas offer a bright, vibrant and ambitious vision of how Melbourne can progress further to embrace sustainable mobility solutions.
“From improving public and personal mobility to reimagining suburban life, their groundbreaking solutions not only bring out their ability to think creatively and holistically; they bring their vision to these talented young people.” It also highlights the importance of paving the way for understanding.”
First, second and third place were awarded in two categories: individual and group. The winners were awarded $5000 and $2500 (each) in cash respectively.
