AIPH World Green City Awards Now Open for Entries

Cities, large and small, invited to showcase their ambitious actions 

Entries from cities around the world are now being accepted for the inaugural AIPH World Green City Awards.

The AIPH World Green City Awards 2022 are designed to champion ambitious nature-orientated approaches to city design and operation. Specifically, they seek to recognise public initiatives relying on a greater use of plants and nature to create better city environments – helping to fulfil local aspirations for improved economic, social and environmental resilience.

We aim to ignite a global movement of cities who are demonstrating the principles of “Living Green” in action and inspiring other cities to raise their ambition through the development of a rich case study library which celebrates best practice.

The awards will celebrate innovation, achievement, and commitment to the globally recognised imperative to embrace nature-based solutions that harvest the power of plants and associated ecosystems services to help address the major challenges facing cities today – or tomorrow. AIPH initiated these awards to bring wide recognition to the value of plants in providing solutions for common city problems and to create an enabling environment to shape and nurture a strategic shift in city governance and planning.

The AIPH World Green City Awards were launched on 22nd April 2021 at the AIPH Green City Conference “Champions of Green Cities”, and will be presented at a gala ceremony to be held in October 2022.

The 2022 edition of the AIPH World Green City Awards will be offered in six categories, with a final selection made from a shortlist of the best three in each category,  and presenting three category winners, and  one overall AIPH World Green City winner.

Entries should consist of a short, simple, written statement, made in English, through an online portal, and may be complemented by supporting evidence such as images, videos, publications (e.g. copy of a report), letters of support (e.g. from partners). The online portal is now open to receive entries by cities right up to the submission deadline of 14th March 2022.
