International Award on Culture and Sustainable Development

With the support of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the City of Mexico, the Agenda 21 of Culture is launching the second edition of the International Award UCLG - MEXICO CITY - Culture 21 on culture and sustainable development. This award is unique as it is the only international prize that explicitly links culture and sustainable development in cities.

The objective of the International Award UCLG - MEXICO CITY - Culture 21 is to recognise leading cities and individuals that have distinguished themselves through their contribution to culture as a key dimension in sustainable cities. The International Award UCLG - MEXICO CITY - Culture 21 has the following specific goals:

  • Ensure that the visibility of the relationship between city, culture and sustainable development is enhanced at an international level, in keeping with the strategic documents of UCLG;
  • Encourage cities of the world to adopt the principles of Agenda 21 for culture, thereby bringing together and exchanging good practices in projects on cities, culture and sustainable development;
  • Strengthen the presence within UCLG of an innovative topic, giving continuity to the leadership launched by Mexico City in 2010 with the UCLG declaration Culture: Fourth Pillar of Sustainable Development.

The Agenda 21 for culture will promote all the very good projects on their website as examples of good practice for culture in sustainable cities.

The call will close on 15 March 2016. The award amounts to 50 000 euros for the winning local government.
