Category "City"

The Award will be given to the local or regional government candidate that wins a competitive call process, open to direct or indirect UCLG members. Indirect UCLG members include those local and regional governments that are members of an association or federation of local or regional governments that is in turn a member of UCLG.

The action awarded should count on, at least, two years of implementation and have documented proof of the impact and the successes achieved.

A city, local or regional government will only be able to present one application.

The winning city will be presented with a trophy produced by an artist from Mexico City, accompanied by a recognition signed by the Head of Government of Mexico City and by the President of UCLG. 

The project presented by the winning city will receive the amount of Euro 50,000, which will be used for its international promotion (the publication of a book, participation in forums, international visibility) and to strengthen the local implementation of the Agenda 21 for culture.

The Jury may either grant the Award to a single city or decide that it (and its related financial amount) be shared by more than one city.
