World Mayor 20/21: Mayors wanted
for Stronger | Fairer | Greener cities
The World Mayor Project 20/21 proposes to honour mayors whose leadership during the CoronaVirus pandemic has provided their communities with protection and assurance. We are looking for mayors who showed outstanding management and social skills but also, and more importantly, acted at all times with compassion towards those most affected by Covid-19.

But looking back is not enough. All cities, of whatever size, wherever they are, and irrespective of the severity with which they were hit by Covid-19, must become more resilient - structurally, economically, socially and environmentally. World Mayor 20/21 wishes to honour mayors who understand the challenges ahead and are preparing to meet them.

Stronger cities: Cities have to be given and acquire the resources, knowledge and expertise to protect their citizens against any threats. Civic authorities must be able to maintain the physical, economic and social infrastructures of their communities. World Mayor 20/21 is looking for mayors who understand that Covid-19 is not a one-off event. There will be other pandemics, there will be industrial catastrophes, there will be natural disasters, there may even be violent conflicts. We expect candidates for the World Mayor Prize to demonstrate effective strategies to make their cities more resilient in the future. Vote now

Fairer cities: To make cities more resilient, their societies have to become more equal. The COVID-19 crisis has shown that disadvantaged groups of society – the poor, minorities, refugees, the elderly and disabled as well as others – suffered disproportionally. Socially and economically divided communities are less able to unite behind a common cause and are thus more fragile and vulnerable. World Mayor is looking for mayors who work towards greater equality and fairness and instil a sense of solidarity across their communities. Vote now

Greener cities: A healthy, humane environment is essential for people’s well being. Lofty long-term goals are not enough. Cities should every year conduct a ‘green audit’ to measure environmental improvements. World Mayor will support mayors who are willing to give 'ordinary' citizens a greater say in major developments of their cities and are willing to share some of theri powers with the people they are elected to serve.

Please nominate mayors who, after the Covid-19 pandemic, are determined to make their cities Stronger, Fairer and Greener. Vote now
