Welcome to the Fit City competition!
How are urban environments affecting our health?
The Fit City competition, sponsored by the Oxford Health Alliance, was an international competition for young people designed to provoke thought and discussion about the impact that urban environments have on our health.
The competition encouraged young people, aged 18-27, to submit their ideas or examples that demonstrated aspects of healthy urban environments or healthy urban design. Submissions included photos, videos, songs, sounds, drawings, art, designs, poetry, and writing. Examples that demonstrated aspects of unhealthy urban environments or design were also accepted.
NOTE: The Fit City competition is now closed to submissions.
The competition closed on 11 December 2007 and the top 5 entries have been selected. The winners will be awarded a trip to Sydney, Australia, in February 2008, where they will be given the opportunity to showcase their submissions, and the submissions of their peers, at the annual global summit of the Oxford Health Alliance. Winners will also meet leading thinkers and activists from health, design, business, government and civil society.
