2020 marks the 5th cycle of the Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation - a platform for the sharing and exchange of innovative practices in the local implementation of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda. Its objective is to contribute to the creation of inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and human settlements.
The Guangzhou Award is co-sponsored by United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), the World Association of the Major Metropolises (Metropolis), and City of Guangzhou, and supported by ICLEI and C40. The award aims to recognize innovation in improving social, economic and environmental sustainability in cities and regions and, in so doing, to advance the prosperity and quality of life of their citizens.
The Guangzhou Award invites your city or region to submit ongoing or recently completed innovative initiatives related to the themes highlighted by the SDGs and the commitments of NUA. Join us and share your experience with the sustainable development community worldwide! Find our more
