Smart Living Challenge is an ongoing platform to make daily life more sustainable. The challenge has three subthemes: ‘MOVE’ for smarter transportation ideas, ‘LIVE’ for smarter homes, and ‘EAT’ for smarter food related issues. Each subtheme has specific problems presented by involved organisations in need of smart ideas.
After almost three months since kick off, the Brazilian team are almost finished with their project on how to MOVE smarter in Rio.
These intensive months has consisted of many creative team meetings and coaching sessions with Hyper Island‘s Johanna Olsson but also inspiration (such as participation in FGV’s Conference on Technology, Automation and Future Mobility) and have received attention from media (such as in the video above from GloboNews).
The MOVE project will be presented to Fundo Verde at UFRJ, and will also be presented at the Embassy of Sweden in Brasilia on September 4th, during the Smart Living Challenge 2015’s Closing Ceremony at the Swedish Embassy. Authorities from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP-Brazil), Federal Ministries and local agencies related to Transportation and Mobility, University Professors and NGO’s will be attending the ceremony where the SLC Brazil Team will be presenting its MOVE project. After the project’s presentation, Ambassador of Sweden to Brazil, Mr. Per-Arne Hjelmborn, will receive the project on behalf of Swedish Institute and will offer a lunch at the his residence to celebrate the end of Smart Living Challenge 2015’s activities in Brazil.
