The City of Nijmegen, for underscoring and promoting the importance of sustainability strategies that are not exclusive, but instead welcoming and supportive of the involvement of all citizens, regardless of background.

 

AWARD CEREMONY

The award ceremony will take place virtually on 23 November at 12:15–13:00 CET as part of a European Committee of the Regions (CoR) meeting. The winner will be announced during the ceremony and will receive €10.000 to support or kick-start a Transformative Action in their city, region or municipality.

ABOUT THE AWARD

2021 marks the fifth anniversary of the Transformative Action Award, which recognises ongoing or concluded Transformative Actions - inspired by the 15 pathways outlined in the Basque Declaration - that accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Climate Agreement, in addition to spearheading the socio-cultural, socio-economic and technological transformation of societies.

The award is organised jointly by ICLEI Europe, the Basque Country and the City of Aalborg (Denmark) with support from the European Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the European Investment Bank (EIB).
