At a grand ceremony on the Atlantic coast in Portugal, the CIVITAS Awards 2017 were given out in front of a large audience. The ceremony served as a fitting conclusion to the second day of the CIVITAS Forum 2017.
The awards were given out in two categories. The CIVITAS "Bold Measure Award" was given to a city that adopts a daring and innovative approach that has not been widely implemented yet, and positions the city as a pioneer in certain thematic categories. The CIVITAS ‘Transformations’ Award was given by the Political Advisory Committee (PAC) for significant transformation and progress towards a liveable and smarter city through an integrated set of mobility measures.
