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 two categories: the City / Local or Regional Government Award, which recognises a city, local or regional government the cultural policy of which has contributed significantly to linking the values of culture (heritage, diversity, creativity and transmission of knowledge) with democratic governance, citizen participation and sustainable development, and the Individual Award, which recognises an internationally renowned individual who has made a fundamental contribution to the relationship between culture and sustainable development.
The winning city will be presented with a trophy produced by an artist from Mexico City, accompanied by a recognition signed by the Head of Government of Mexico City and by the President of UCLG.
The project presented by the winning city will receive the amount of Euro 50,000, which will be used for its international promotion (the publication of a book, participation in forums, international visibility) and to strengthen the local implementation of the Agenda 21 for culture.
The Jury may either grant the Award to a single city or decide that it (and its related financial amount) be shared by more than one city.
The Jury may also recognise as “good practices in culture and sustainable cities” as many projects as relevant. These will later be internationally disseminated by the UCLG Culture Committee.
The Jury may either grant the Award to a single individual or decide that it (and its related financial amount) be shared by more than one person. The recipient of the Award will be presented with a trophy produced by an artist from Mexico City, accompanied by a recognition signed by the Head of Government of Mexico City and by the President of UCLG. The selected personality will receive the amount of Euro 25,000.
