Wellbeing Cities Award

Moving from Smart Cities to Wellbeing Cities

Facing tomorrow’s challenges, cities worldwide benefit from putting wellbeing at the heart of their approach. We see planning and policy making more inclined to public health investments, efforts to promote diverse and cohesive communities together with sustainable environments, and stronger local economies.

The Wellbeing Cities Award recognizes those initiatives by offering a powerful global platform to tell their story and inspire others. Additionally, following a two-round application process, laureates will be announced at the annual Wellbeing Cities Forum on June 16-17, in Montréal, QC, where they will meet a global network of leaders committed to urban wellbeing.
