During the 11th METROPOLIS World Congress, to take place in Hyderabad from 7 to 10 October 2014, the 5th edition of the Metropolis Award Seeking Better Quality of Life for the World’s Metropolises will be held.
Any METROPOLIS member city, up to date with their corresponding annual membership fee, which has implemented a project or experience worthy of global recognition for its contribution to improving quality of life in its city, may submit an application. The project or experience must be related to improving citizens’ quality of life, especially that of women, young people and people with disabilities.
The scope of action will preferably lie in the realm of urban planning, the environment, housing, public transport, safety, economic, social and cultural development. However, consideration will also be given to other projects of public interest undertaken in other fields. See the 2014 Terms and Conditions here.
Three of the projects submitted will receive the Metropolis Award. Three additional projects will receive an honourable mention. The city that garners the first prize will be exempt from paying the annual membership fee in 2015. The winning projects will be published in full on the Metropolis website as well as a summary of the other projects. All the projects will be announced in the association’s regular publications.
Entries for the 5th Metropolis Award may be submitted until 30 April 2014.
