==============================================

*TAKE THE INCLUSIVE MOBILITY CHALLENGE!*

WANTED: Ingenious projects or businesses that move people  (not cars) in
Metro Manila.

*WHAT IS THE INCLUSIVE MOBILITY CHALLENGE?*

It is a search for innovative projects or businesses that achieve one or
more objectives:

• Make it safer and easier for the poor and the vulnerable—including
persons with disability, children, and the elderly—to walk, bicycle, or
commute in the megacity.

• Cut travel costs and times, make public transport more convenient, and
improve the ways that citizens access services (e.g. health, education,
business registration, etc.).

• Lessen climate change brought about by motor vehicles.

*
*

*WHO MAY JOIN THE CHALLENGE?*

Challenge entrants may include Philippines-based individuals (who are at
least 15 years of age), businesses, organizations, and formal or informal
entities (i.e., an association, guild, student group, or village).

Entrants must have an ongoing project or business in Metro Manila that
promotes mobility for all people.

The entry can be an innovative business or a software app that eases
mobility, a transport system that moves people, goods and services more
efficiently, or a project that promotes the use of alternative fuels or
renewable energy.

CALLING ON THOSE WHO HAVE A PROJECT OR BUSINESS THAT IS OUTSIDE OF METRO
MANILA!

Show us that it can be implemented in the megacity, and you can submit an
entry, too.

* DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ENTRIES: July 30, 2012 *

This project is undertaken by the Inclusive Mobility Project under Ateneo
School of Government’s Innovations at the Base of the Pyramid (iBoP) Asia
