Brainstorm: Urban Core Family Freedom Brainstorm - Ends Mar 19th - Win Prizes!

Brief for Urban Core Family Freedom Brainstorm - Ends Mar 19th - Win Prizes!

The Ask

What will families need to move around in the cities of the future? In this brainstorm, we ask you to build empathy for families that dwell in urban centers by learning about their mobility-related pain points. Then, turn your insights into your unique Point of View about what this urban future looks like-- and perhaps win a prize!

Our understanding of “family” has evolved to include today’s full diversity of family systems-- for example, single-parent homes and parenting by grandparents and other extended family. But raising children in a city remains challenging-- from shuttling children back and forth to school and extracurricular activities, to the myriad of daily errands required to support a family, all in the whirlwind of traffic, horns, bicycles, pedestrians, and other fellow urbanites trying to get home.

We’re shifting the way we do brainstorms-- in order to submit an IDEA to this brainstorm, you must follow these specifications and deliverables...
