Sustainable Cities: Transformative Action Award - apply now!

28 April 2017

Applicants are being sought for the Transformative Action Award, which rewards initiatives which address the goals of the Basque Declaration including the use of public procurement to create productive, sustainable and resilient cities.

Initiatives which involve a high level of innovation, for example in terms of social innovation and civic economy, that inspire others to replicate the action elsewhere in Europe are invited from local and regional authorities, and civil society organisations. Actions are preferably part of a local strategy or vision rather than standalone and must be in place for at least three months and less than 5 years at the time of application.

Transformative actions combine various pathways and address one or more agendas of the Basque Declaration. They should achieve a comprehensive transformation with a positive local or regional impact. Winners will be rewarded with free entry and a presentation at the next European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns taking place in 2019 and publicity through the Sustainable Cities Platform, ICLEI online platforms and publications and a promotional video. The deadline for applications is 18 June 2017.
