Thanks to the experience of City as a Service and the participation to the conference Habitat III, PUSH has been selected by the United Nations to organise a second Urban Thinkers Campus.
Right to the Future will take place in Palermo from the 6th to the 8th of April 2017 and it will develop a debate, starting from the principles of the New Urban Agenda, proposing visions for the city over the next years.
The citizens under 35 years of age who want to be part of the Urban Thinkers Campus staff will be able to contribute to the organisation of this international event. We are looking for proactive volunteers who will welcome and give support to the speakers and to all those who take part in the Campus.
Given the international scope of the event, a good knowledge of English is requested for volunteers.
University students will have the chance to request the recognition of CFU credits at their faculty.
Send your application by April 1st by filling out the form below.[caldera_form id=”CF58adb142141f7″]
PUSH, as an associate member of the World Urban Campaign and its initiative I’m City Changer, has been selected to coordinate the organization of the first Urban Thinkers Campus in Palermo (8th – 9th – 10th October).

The Campus is designed as an open space for workshops and seminars, an opportunity to share and promote positive urban transformations.
PUSH is searching for under 35 volunteers for the daily organization of the Campus. We need someone who can greet and support all the participants that will attend the event in Palermo from all over the world. For this reason it is requested a good knowledge of English.
It will be a unique training opportunity: students will also have the chance to ask for CFU for their academic path.

Today, 17 November 2014, the new SUVChallenge (with SUV standing for “Sustainable Urban Values), the contest awarding the sustainable mobility of the students of the Università di Palermo, has been launched.
By moving on foot, by bike or vehicle pooling, it is possible, via an app, to accumulate O2 points allowing the students to win the prizes raffled out by the partners in the project.
This challenge is an occasion for the over-500 students who have joined the competition to test the app in advance and to actively contribute to its development.
Parallel to the community of UNIPA students, for the first time another, smaller, one will be created by invitation, comprising all those who are interested in testing the app exclusively.
The app is available for iOs and Android devices and is now at its fourth release.

In addition to the section dedicated to the project and the experimental phase, a huge section has been devoted to the SUVChallenge, the first trafficO2 challenge involving 100 students from Palermo University who have applied to participate and become app testers.
From today, students can dowload the app and get ready for the challenge, starting on Wednesday May 28.
