TRANSFORMATIVE ACTION AWARD 2022

ABOUT THE AWARD

The Transformative Action Award, co-organised by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability and the City of Aalborg (Denmark), with support from the European Committee of the Regions and the European Investment Bank, is given to a city, region or civil society organisation that uses the 15 pathways outlined in the Basque Declaration to catalyse a socio-cultural, socio-economic or technological transformation in their community, in addition to furthering the implementation of the European Green Deal at local level.

The actions taken reflect local or regional contributions to the implementation of international goals and commitments, such as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Climate Agreement and more.

WHO CAN APPLY?

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  Mannheim Message. Endorsing the Mannheim Message only takes a few minutes and can be done on our website, here.

In honour of the European Year of Youth, applicants with a focus on youth or with youth as organisers are strongly encouraged to apply.

The applicant must be responsible for 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 must be submitted in English.
