The City of Goods Challenge
The City of Goods Challenge is an intense, six-day program which will bring 20 talented innovators with diverse backgrounds to explore new approaches to sustainable city transport logistics.
Online shopping is so convenient, yet so heavy on the transportation infrastructure and the environment. In Berlin, 2,450 vehicles deliver around 400,000 packages – a day. These delivery vans clog streets and bike lanes, they create noise, and pollute the air.
The DO School in partnership with BVG, Berlin’s public transport authority, invite you to tackle this challenge with us: How can Berlin’s public transportation infrastructure be leveraged to make goods delivery smart and sustainable?
How can buses, subways and stations be used as part of system to transport parcels to individuals and companies? And what role can BVG play in collaboration with traditional service providers and new crowd-delivery opportunities?
You will be guided through the innovative DO School Method to create exciting answers to such questions – and the best approaches to the test. You will innovate, learn and connect in a diverse community of inspiring individuals in one of the world’s most dynamic and sustainability-focused capitals, Berlin, to make an impact on a pressing issue and deliver a concrete result.
Who should apply?
Individuals residing in Europe over the age of 18 who have demonstrated a pioneering, creative spirit in fields such as – but not limited to – logistics, mobility, urban planning, engineering, shared economy, design and technology.
Please note: this is not an exhaustive list. We will consider people from a variety of backgrounds and wide range of experiences, so if you feel like you can make a valuable contribution, please apply and tell us why!
All backgrounds and nationalities are welcome, but please note that for non EU-nationals we can only accept candidates already based in Europe, in possession of the relevant visa.
The program takes place at The DO School campus, conveniently located at the heart of Berlin, one of the most exciting and sustainability-focused world capitals.
