The results of the 24th Challenge Day edition ranking City + City are available for downloads. The cities that competed against each other in 2018, and will keep on competing until 2020, can now view their positions on their own categories. Note that it is the number of inhabitants that categorizes the cities.
With the aim to promote integration and communication between administrators and leaderships that participate of the campaign, a new format of challenge was created: City + City. Encouraging collaboration, the sum of both towns’ results generates the current classification – which will have a new round each year until 2020. In other words, the percentage of the population that took part of Challenge Day in each city plus the result of its competitor will rank them, as a pair.
