2018 Champion Cities
The 35 cities selected as Champion Cities in the 2018 Mayors Challenge hail from across the United States. They are currently participating in a 6-month testing phase where they will conduct public prototypes of their ideas.
The topics addressed by the Champion Cities offer a snapshot of the top challenges faced by U.S. leaders. Climate, Health, and Jobs emerged as the most popular topics as cities look for unique ways to reduce carbon emissions and create renewable energy options, confront the opioid crisis, and prevent arrested youth from re-entering the criminal justice system.
