info and Rules

Welcome to the Tomorrow Challenge 2021 – The First Settlement.


You are part of crew that just landed on Mars. The objective is not only to survive, but to build a new home where people can thrive. It is not an easy task; the environment is far more extreme than anything on earth. You need to do what humans always done when faced with the impossible – start to innovate.

We challenge you to visualize a habitat on Mars where the new chapter of humankind
will be written. Remember, it is far from home so the settlement must include all the necessary infrastructure and functions in order to be self-sustaining. Transportation, living quarters, energy sources, farming, etc. 

This is an opportunity to start fresh and build a new and better future for humanity.


We have provided you with a survival kit. The most basic stuff for survival. Use it however you want. You can download it here:
