Have you been looking for an opportunity to convert that great law review idea into a major new initiative to make your community a better place to live? Maybe its a novel regulatory reform and sustainable legal initiative that can improve the sense of place and quality of life in your locale.
If so, you might check out the new Philips Livable Cities Award competition. Here are some details:
Philips is looking for individuals, community or non-governmental organizations and businesses who have ideas - ideas for ‘simple solutions’ that will improve people’s health and well-being in a city.
. With three different award categories, it seems like a great land use regulatory idea centered on a sustainable quality of life is just waiting to win, eh?
