Our celebration of this year’s 15 Great Places begins with Learning from Europe, where we will bring together the finalists of the 2016 European City of the Year Award: Bologna, San Sebastián and Stockholm, to share lessons and learning with you about their past successes and future plans. Each is a distinctive and unique city, and the ways in which they have overcome challenges and seized opportunities provide both inspiration and practical ideas for other places.

The following day, Friday 6 November, we convene at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London to announce and celebrate the winners of The Urbanism Awards for 2016. The Awards recognise the Cities, Towns, Neighbourhoods, Streets and Places that have demonstrated innovation and excellence – in all aspects of urbanism – and will reflect the votes that will be placed shortly by you as an Academician.
