The International Association of Horticultural Producers (AIPH) members consist of thousands of growers of flowers and ornamental plants around the world who are together united by one essential goal – promoting the place of plants in people’s lives.
AIPH hosts several conferences, webinars and events such as the International Grower of the Year award throughout the year. Read about these along with the latest news about the association’s activities.
AIPH’s key aim is to stimulate demand for ornamental trees, plants and flowers worldwide. We are committed to supporting growers in achieving this by protecting and promoting the interests of the industry.
Award entries will be assessed on the basis of five evaluation criteria:
Vision: the initiative should be bold and include a fresh new model for using and/or delivering nature-orientated solution(s).
Significance: the initiative should be designed to address a serious local problem or set of problems.
Implementation: the initiative should have achieved or be well on its way to achieving its stated objective(s) and/or desirable outcomes.
Learning and Transferability: the initiative should have generated some learning enabling enhanced local practice in the future and/or offer potential for customised replication in other cities.
Resilience: The initiative should be mindful of its impact on the planet and of its ability to be sustained overtime.
Cities submitting an entry will be provided with detailed application guidelines that describe further the evaluation process and the way in which entries will be scored against each of the five judging criteria.
Award entries will be judged by a multidisciplinary technical panel with an advanced knowledge of Green City principles. The Technical Panel will select a shortlist of three cities for each award category, and may request additional information to be submitted.
The Jury will consist of members drawn from internationally recognised City, Nature, and Sustainability focused organisations. The Jury will select final winners from the shortlist. Jurors will be appointed for one round of awards at a time.
