The Guangzhou Award is co-sponsored by the United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), the World Association of the Major Metropolises (Metropolis), and the City of Guangzhou. The Award aims to recognize innovation in improving social, economic and environmental sustainability in cities and regions and, in so doing, to advance the prosperity and life quality of their citizens.

The Guangzhou Award will be discerned to 5 cities for each award cycle. Each of the winning cities will receive a USD 20,000 cash prize, a trophy and a commemorative certificate. Besides the 5 awards, the Organizing Committee of the Guangzhou Award also intends to recognize one of the short-listed initiatives for its popularity with the public.

Cities and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, the world’s leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, more commonly referred to as the Sustainable Development Goals or the SDGs. These SDGs present a blueprint for humanity to achieve sustainable development within the next 15 years. A major new development in these SDGs is the recognition that cities will play a critical role in their attainment. Furthermore, Goal 11 of the SDGs is specifically devoted to making cities and human settlements ‘inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.’ 

As UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon mentioned in his speech on 25 September 2015 at the UN General Assembly, “Cities are hubs for ideas, commerce, culture, science, productivity, social development and much more. At their best, cities have enabled people to advance socially and economically.” He further stated that the challenges cities face can be overcome in ways that allow them to continue to thrive and grow, while improving resource use and reducing pollution and poverty. The “future we want” includes cities of opportunities for all, with access to basic services, energy, housing, transportation and more.
