Urbanism Awards: Make a Nomination – open to all

Help us promote and learn from places that demonstrate positive social, physical and economic urbanism – nominate a great City, Town, Neighbourhood, Street or Place for an Urbanism Award.

2021 Urbanism Awards theme: Climate Emergency

We are living in a climate crisis. The World Economic Forum’s global risk assessment for the next decade found the top five dangers were all environmental, including extreme weather, failure to prepare for climate change and the destruction of the natural world.

The growing urban population continues to be a powerful influence on climate change. Cities and towns must be part of the solution! We are therefore particularly interested this year in nominations from cities, towns, neighbourhoods, streets and places that demonstrating leadership in addressing climate change.

Deadline for nominations is Wednesday 1 April 2020, 17:00 GMT
