About City Mayors



Introducing
World Mayor

The City Mayors Foundation awards The World Mayor Prize every two years to a mayor who has made outstanding contributions to his or her community and has developed a vision for urban living and working that is relevant to towns and cities across the world.

The City Mayors Foundation
The philantropic City Mayors Foundation, an international think tank dedicated to local government, consists of professionals working together to promote strong and prosperous cities as well as good local government. Established in 2003, City Mayors encourages city leaders from across the world to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to long-standing urban problems such as housing, transport, education and employment. City Mayors also debates ways to meet the latest environmental, technological, social and security challenges, which affect the well-being of citizens.

The City Mayors Foundation has no association with any city or organisation and is run on philantropic lines. Sponsorships, advertising, subscriptions, donations or any other kind of revenue are NOT sought and will be rejected, if offered.

Code of Ethics
The City Mayors Foundation and the World Mayor Project were established in 2003 to promote, encourage and facilitate good local government. To strengthen local government further, a Code of Ethics for city leaders, who wish to perform their duties beyond all reproach, has been devised. All mayors wishing be considered for the World Mayor Prize are expected to sign up to the Code of Ethics. More

World Mayor 2014
The City Mayors Foundation organises the World Mayor Project and awards the World Mayor Prize. The Project is designed to raise public interest in local government and encourage worldwide participation. The Prize, which has been given since 2004, honours mayors with the vision, passion and skills to make their cities incredible places to live in, work in and visit.

The World Mayor Project aims to show to a worldwide audience what outstanding mayors can achieve and raise their profiles nationally and internationally.

The organisers of the World Mayor Project are looking for city leaders who excel in qualities like: Honesty, leadership and vision, management abilities and integrity, social and economic awareness, ability to provide security and to protect the environment as well as the will and ability to foster good relations between communities from different cultural, racial and social backgrounds. Candidates are also expected to act at all times against any kind of discrimination.

The winner receives the artistically acclaimed World Mayor trophy, while the runner-up is awarded the World Mayor Commendation.

2014 Timetable
Nominations were accepted until 21 May 2014. A longlist of candidates has gone online. A shortlist of 25 nominees has been announced on 18 June 2014. A second round of voting will take place between 18 June and October 2014. The winner of the 2014 World Mayor Prize and other results of the World Mayor Project will be declared in January 2015.
