World Resources Institute has opened its submission process for the 2021-2022 WRI Ross Center Prize for Cities. The competition is an opportunity to win a top prize of 250,000 US dollars and four runner-up prize pots of 25,000 USD each.

The Prize for Cities draws global attention to creative problem solving, which transforms lives and celebrates the best work in creating inclusive, resilient and low carbon cities. This year’s theme is “Thriving Together in Turbulent Times,” reflecting the uncertainty that cities face today. The judges are looking for exemplary initiatives and projects that show how cities and communities can respond to uncertainty, disruption and crisis. You can read more about the theme here.

If you are part of an initiative that fits the bill, I encourage you to start your application.

The Prize for Cities is open to submissions from businesses, NGOs, community groups, local governments and collaborations of all types of organisations and individuals from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
