About the Programme

In collaboration with partners Living in Metropolises (LiM) and Village Co-Living, The European Federation for Living (EFL) is giving student teams around Europe the chance to design a concept for a real co-living community and a real site near the centre of Helsinki, Finland. We are looking for interdisciplinary, co-creative student teams who want to push the limits of creativity and bring forth new ideas for sustainable urban communities. This competition offers you a unique chance to explore opportunities for smarter, healthier, greener, and more digitally connected patterns of living, and build them into people-centred designs. Teams will not only design a building – the hardware – but also envision local networks, services, and value streams – the software and the blockchains – that will support affordable community living on and around the site. To meet this multifaceted challenge, we encourage teams to include interdisciplinary expertise where possible, and to think across disciplinary boundaries within their design process. In addition, you will get the opportunity to: Design for a real-life project in Helsinki, Finland Win a (monetary) prize!
