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 2024 edition of the AIPH World Green City Awards is offered in seven categories, with three finalists in each category from which one category winner is selected, and with one Grand Winner chosen from the seven category winners.
New to the 2024 edition is the Youth Award, which will be decided by a new Youth Jury. Led by the Global Youth Biodiversity network (GYBN), and including representatives from other youth organisations, the Youth Jury will select from the 21 finalists the top entry most likely to inspire the youth and fulfil their needs for a secure, healthy future.
