2018 Transformative Action Award receives record number of entries

The application deadline for the 2018 Transformative Action Award recently closed, with this year’s award setting a record for the number of applications received. In total 40 innovative and inspiring Transformative Actions from cities, regions and civil society organisations across Europe were submitted.

The award, co-organised by ICLEI, the Basque Country, and the City of Aalborg (Denmark), rewards ongoing or concluded Transformative Actions that use the 15 pathways outlined in the Basque Declaration to bring about the socio-cultural, socio-economic, and technological transformation of societies.

The shortlisted candidates will be revealed in September and the winner will be announced at an award ceremony on 15 November at the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels (Belgium).

Alongside being recognised as a leader of sustainable urban transformation in Europe, the winner of the 2018 award will receive €10,000 to help initiate further transformative actions in their city or region.
