New York City leverages smart technologies to achieve the goals set forth in Mayor de Blasio’s ambitious Plan for One NYC. Equity is an explicit guiding principle in our work—a lens through which we view all of our planning, policymaking, and governing.
OneNYC is a comprehensive plan for a sustainable and resilient city for all New Yorkers that addresses the profound social, economic, and environmental challenges ahead.
NYCx works with civic, industry and tech experts to develop technologies that benefit all New Yorkers. Our goals are to grow job opportunities for New Yorkers, test new ideas with the public and make NYC the place to launch tech for the public.

Each Challenge aims to solve a specific problem of urban life and move New York City towards the principles laid out in Mayor de Blasio’s OneNYC plan: growth, equity, sustainability, and resilience.
