How Do You Sustain a City?
There are many ways to approach this question — through community involvement, new technologies, and more direct government, for example — and the answers came to light at last week’s Urban Sustainability Apps Competition Sustain-A-City celebration presented by the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT). Together with Chicago’s friends, we saw the product of months of hard work creating technology to create scalable, app-based solutions to neighborhood issues.
Congratulations to this year’s winning team, Keeana Barber and Maurice Gunn, who created an anonymous crime reporting app, Stop Crime App. Second and third place prizes went to Chi Safe Path and Neighbors Creating Neighborhoods, respectively, with People’s Choice being awarded to Schedule Scout.
