The AIPH World Green City Awards are designed to champion ambitious nature-orientated approaches to city design and operation. Specifically, they seek to recognise public initiatives relying on a greater use of plants and nature to create better city environments – helping to fulfil local aspirations for improved economic, social and environmental resilience.
The awards celebrate innovation, achievement, and commitment to the globally recognised imperative to embrace nature-orientated solutions that harvest the power of plants and associated ecosystems services to help address the major challenges facing cities.
The inaugural awards took place in 2022 with winners being announced at a ceremony in the Special Self-Governing Province of Jeju, Republic of Korea in October 2022. Out of the eighteen finalists, six Category Winners and one Grand Winner were selected.
