The Transformative Action Award seeks initiatives carried out by cities, regions and organisations that promote sustainability and inclusiveness
The Basque Declaration highlights the need for ambitious local leaders to think outside the box and find innovative ways to economically and socially engage with civil society in order to meet economic, environmental and social challenges, and at the same time marks the importance of finding sustainable solutions that increase economic value for the benefit of the local population. The Basque Declaration also underlines the important role of civil society.
The jury of the Award is therefore looking for actions that are transforming towns and cities, for example, through the use of participatory funding mechanisms, the implementation of smart solutions and technologies, or the mobilisation of ideas that encourage and revitalise the local economy, among others.
Applications will be assessed during the summer and the shortlist will be announced in September. The Transformative Action Award Ceremony will take place in October 2017.
The winning application will be recognised as the Transformative Action of 2017. It will also be part of the programme of the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns. All submitted applications will be showcased in the Sustainable Cities Platform database to inspire other local leaders and organisations working towards sustainability, resilience and inclusiveness.
