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).

 

 

SPECIAL MENTION

The Transformative Action Award special mention recognises a city or civic organisation for its outstanding application and efforts to build more sustainable, resilient local communities. The 2021 special mention is:

Växtvärket Malmö Ideella, Sweden, for its Gröna Biblioteket (Green Library) project which cleverly combines sustainable solutions, intergenerational education and the revitalisation of a well-known institution. The project aims to foster low-carbon, sufficient communities that collaborate in different ways by creating an access point for locals and raising citizens' green literacy level.
