Don’t miss your chance to win €10,000 to kick-start your next sustainable mobility project with the 2020 Transformative Action Award.

As a result of COVID-19, we face extremely challenging situations in Europe and beyond. As the pandemic unfolds, local and regional governments are assuming a strong role in safeguarding the health of their citizens.

The role of local governments and civil society organisations in ensuring a good quality of life for their residents has never been clearer.

In recognition of the importance of creating sustainable, resilient, and liveable cities, the 2020 Transformative Action Award recognises transformative actions carried out by European cities, regions, or civil society organisations that use the 15 pathways of the Basque Declaration to bring about the socio-cultural, socio-economic, and technological transformation of their community.

One of the pathways that cities, regions, and civil society organisations are invited to submit Transformative Actions through centres on sustainable urban mobility. The jury is looking for examples of innovative, green transport concepts that have helped create sustainable communities.

In addition to joining previous winners Lousada, (Portugal), Ghent (Belgium) and Nilüfer (Turkey) as recognised leaders of sustainable urban transformation in Europe, the winner of the 2020 award will receive €10,000 to initiate further transformative actions in their city or region.

The winner will also receive free entry to the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns, Mannheim (Germany), 30 September – 2 October 2020, where the 2020 Transformative Action Award ceremony will take place.

The competition is open to any local or regional authority, or civil society organisation located in an EU Member State, EEA country or EU candidate or accession country that has endorsed the Basque Declaration. The application deadline is 31 July 2020.
