|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.
Cities must become stronger and more resourceful in order to deal with unexpected challenges. We expect candidates for the World Mayor Prize to demonstrate effective strategies to make their cities more resilient in the future.
Cities must also become fairer. 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. Mayors should also be willing to share some of their powers with the people they are elected to serve.
Cities must become greener. A healthy environment is essential for people’s well being. But lofty long-term goals are not enough. World Mayor will acclaim mayors who every year conduct a ‘green audit’ to measure environmental improvements.
Please nominate mayors who, after the Covid-19 pandemic, are determined to make their cities Stronger, Fairer, Greener. Full list of criteria
