- Fuel innovation and economic opportunity without polluting by products
- Shift traditional models of behavior and daily practices
- Use new data, knowledge, governance and / or finance
- Tackle potentially negative effects of climate policies
For the 2020-2021 cycle, the Prize for Cities invites submissions on the theme of “Inclusive Cities for a Changing Climate,” seeking initiatives that show how to live and thrive in a changing climate by tackling both the climate crisis and urban inequality.
