Jury Report of the 5th Guangzhou Award
Download: 5th Guangzhou Award Jury Report
We, the members of the Jury, gathered virtually in Guangzhou on 9 and 10 November 2021, are pleased to announce the award-winning cities for the fifth cycle of the Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation (Guangzhou Award). We were extremely impressed by the high quality of the submissions and had great difficulty in selecting the finalists. Nonetheless, after reviewing the case materials and participating in the International Seminars on Learning from Urban Innovation in which we were able to examine each one individually, we have selected the following cities and regions. They stood out for their ability to stimulate new policies and strategies, form new partnerships engaging with multi-sector stakeholders and employ technology to their advantage. Of note, we would like to consider the remaining semi-finalists as earning “Medal of Honour” for their having been selected from a field of 273 submissions.
