What we are looking for

We believe life is better when people have more courage than fear.

We are calling on curious and courageous minds from around the globe to help us create a better future by sharing their personal stories and ideas.

For this challenge, we are looking for video stories that explore the future of living, looking specifically at how future technological innovation might impact the living spaces of people dwelling in our urban centers.

The Journey of Living

We asked teenagers around the world to describe what they imagined for the future of living spaces. Now, we are looking to hear your thoughts.


Today, more than 50% of humans are living in urban areas (source). How will this dense co-habitation influence trust among people? Will entire cities be subjected to surveillance as a means of crime prevention? Will data be used to evaluate or score the trustworthiness of potential tenants? Is the movie Minority Report science fiction or actual forecast?


Are smart homes a buzzworthy concept or here to stay? Will all of our movements be tracked, measured with sensors, and connected to services? Will our neighbors still water our plants while we go on holiday? How will technology influence care for the elderly? Will we be less prone to anxiety knowing warning systems are in place to monitor their health and safety?


With cities growing denser and urban living already cramped and expensive, what types of coping mechanisms will future urban dwellers have to develop in order to persevere? If families are no longer living in traditional, multi-generational homes, how will we find emotional support? Will we build communities out of app groups and videoconferences? Will personal assistant technology become our new family?
