The EUROCITIES awards have been running since 2006. Past examples of winning projects include a project encouraging citizens to become successful community leaders in Bristol; a cultural network designed to improve quality of life for elderly citizens in Espoo; and the renewal of an old industrial island in Bydgoszcz to become a centre of culture, leisure and entrepreneurship.
Many of these projects have gone on to achieve further success at national and European level.
Each shortlisted award entry is required to submit a short video of its project. You can browse the shortlisted entries and winners using the awards menu on the EUROCITIES website.
