This award aims to recognise important contributions from cities and individuals to the relation between culture and sustainable development. Australian councils and their employee and community members are encouraged to apply.
Category 1: City
This category will recognise a city, local or regional government cultural policy of which has contributed significantly to linking the values of culture (heritage, diversity, creativity and transmission of knowledge) with democratic governance, citizen participation and sustainable development. The action awarded should count on, at least, two years of implementation and have documented proof of the impact and the successes achieved.
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. Click here for more information about this award category.
