The winner of the 2018 Transformative Action Award will receive a prize of €10,000 to help initiate further transformative actions in the winner’s city or region.
The award, organised by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, the Basque Country and the City of Aalborg (Denmark), rewards ongoing or concluded Transformative Actions that use the 15 pathways outlined in the Basque Declaration to achieve the socio-cultural, socio-economic, and technological transformation of societies.
One of the pathways that cities, regions, and civil society organisations are invited to submit Transformative Actions through centers on sustainable urban mobility, with the jury looking for Actions which use innovative transport concepts to create sustainable communities.
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 applicant must be behind the implementation of the Transformative Action and the Action must have been in place for at least three months, but no longer than five years, at the time of submission.
All applications should be fully completed before submission and in clear English. The application deadline is 31 July 2018.
The winner of the 2018 Transformative Action Award will join last year’s winner, Nilüfer (Turkey), as a recognised leader of sustainable urban transformation in Europe.
