We offers multiple ways to get involved with CNT's work at the intersection of environmental sustainability, social equity, and technology

2019 Urban Sustainability Tech Challenge

The 2019 Urban Sustainability Tech Challenge seeks sponsors for its 2019 program which will be highlighted at the Motorola Solutions Innovation Center on December 10, 2019. The Challenge will create a collaborative team between CNT, local Chicago community-based organizations, educational institutions, and the corporate sector. We'll involve STEM/data science education to uncover root causes of the high cost of living for low-income urban residents, and possible paths to address this. The program will culminate in a presentation event in December 2019 and offer exposure within local communities and citywide. Contact Paul Cusimano with questions and to get involved.
