Could your public sector organisation be a Trailblazing organisation of the Year? 

 

The Sustainable City Awards are looking for local authorities and public sector organisations in London which have turned the COVID-19 crisis into an opportunity to build back better, shown resilience and delivered impact in their work.

 

We’re seeking to celebrate organisations which have challenged how things are done and developed new thinking to deliver measurable impact on people’s wellbeing and the environment.

Who can be nominated for the public sector and local authority Trailblazing organisation of the year

 

All public sector organisations serving the 33 London Boroughs are eligible to apply, for example local authorities, a Business Improvement District, a higher education establishment, a police service organisation, a fire and rescue service or Hospital trust. Nominated organisations do not need to be based in London, but the activities they are being nominated for need to benefit Londoners and London’s environment.

Improved the way we live by taking action now to make sustainable ways of life a reality

We are looking for nominations of organisations that have demonstrated resilience, imagination and ambition in order to deliver measurable impacts for Londoners, as well as London’s/the global environment.

Engaged with and inspired others to spark collective action

An organisation that has worked collaboratively with the people it serves, suppliers, or its peers in order to create greater impact or change towards sustainability.

Involved under-represented groups or less engaged communities in creating their vision and/or taking action

An organisation that has actively listened to and involved under-represented groups or less engaged communities in decision-making and delivery.

Local authorities and public services - changemaker of the year

 

The awards will also celebrate London’s unsung heroes by seeking the Individual Changemaker of the Year – someone working as part of a Local Authority or public sector organisation who has improved the way we live by thinking big and taking action now to make sustainable ways of life a reality, engaging with and inspiring other organisations, communities or individuals to spark collective action, and where possible, successfully involved under-represented communities.

 

Winners will be recognised at a virtual learning and award ceremony in Spring 2021, and offered a year of support to access networking, collaboration and learning opportunities through Global Action Plan’s networks.

 

The awards will be especially looking to celebrate and broadcast the many great examples of action led or co-led by culturally diverse and under-privileged communities to advance racial, social and environmental justice.
