Q. What is the theme for the 2022 Movin’On Challenge Design?
A. Delivered – Bringing people what they need.

Technology has transformed society’s expectations into a global culture that demands the rapid delivery of goods. The future of mobility must be more than simply moving people and goods; the evolving world demands delivery of services to all people.

Nearly 30 percent of the world’s population lives outside urban centers and an equal number reside in economically depressed urban areas with sub-standard infrastructure. We must now ensure services, including essential services, are readily available to people with limited access to transportation.

The 2022 Movin’On Challenge to entrants is to design a mobility solution to provide essential services to all people in a safe, efficient, and sustainable way.

  • Identify the people or communities that your solution would serve, by including related research, and how it will improve their quality of life.
  • Explain how your idea is built on the foundation of inclusive design to enhance the human experience, and not simply to make services more convenient for those who already have access.
  • Illustrate how your innovative solution will deliver services to people.
