Wellbeing City Award

Recognizing cities committed to urban wellbeing

We believe humans should be at the heart of our thinking on the future of cities. By focusing on and investing in wellbeing through urban policy and design, city leaders and planners can build comprehensive, sustainable  and inclusive ways to improve their communities. Those cities committed to promoting wellbeing deserve to be recognized and rewarded — and we must highlight them in order to inspire others.

NewCities has thus launched a new award to raise the profile of and recognize the cities placing their citizens’ wellbeing in the heart of their design. The Wellbeing City Award is the first international award of its kind.

The Award recognizes the complexities of prioritizing and achieving wellbeing through robust efforts in public health, strong communities, a thriving and sustainable environment and a healthy local economy.

This is a unique opportunity for cities to share with, learn from and inspire one another on a global scale – bringing together examples of wellbeing initiatives, programs and policies from across the globe and from cities of all sizes.

Applications for the 2019 Award process have closed and shortlisted cities will be announced in the coming weeks. Winning cities will be announced in early 2019.
