Stronger cities

Cities have to be given and acquire the resources, knowledge and expertise to protect their citizens against any threats. Civic authorities must be able to maintain and strenghten the physical, economic and social infrastructures of their communities as there will be other crises. VOTE NOW

Fairer cities

To make cities more resilient, their societies have to become more equal. The Covid-19 crisis has shown that disadvantaged groups of society suffered disproportionally. Socially and economically divided communities are less able to act as one and are more vulnerable. VOTE NOW

Grenner cities

A healthy, humane environment is essential for people’s well being. Lofty long-term goals are not enough. Cities should every year conduct ‘green audits’ to measure environmental improvements. Mayors should be willing to give citizens a say in developments of their cities. VOTE NOW



World Mayor 20/21
Stronger | Fairer | Greener

Nomination form ||| Criteria ||| History ||| The World Mayor Prize


CoronaVirus and World Mayor
Following the Covid-19 pandemic, it is with regret that we have to announce changes to World Mayor 2020. We had originally planned to release this year’s shortlist at the end of July and announce the winner of the 2020 World Mayor Prize in January 2021. Unfortunately, this is no longer possible.

The first phase of World Mayor 20/21 will now be extended to December. In January 2021, we will, instead of announcing this year’s honours, publish the names of those mayors shortlisted for the World Mayor Prize. SEE FULL DETAILS



World Mayor 20/21: Mayors wanted
for Stronger | Fairer | Greener cities

The World Mayor Project 20/21 proposes to honour mayors whose leadership during the CoronaVirus pandemic has provided their communities with protection and assurance. We are looking for mayors who showed outstanding management and social skills but also, and more importantly, acted at all times with compassion towards those most affected by Covid-19.

But looking back is not enough. All cities, of whatever size, wherever they are, and irrespective of the severity with which they were hit by Covid-19, must become more resilient - structurally, economically, socially and environmentally. World Mayor 20/21 wishes to honour mayors who understand the challenges ahead and are preparing to meet them.

Cities must become stronger and better prepared to deal with unexpected challenges. We expect candidates for the World Mayor Prize to demonstrate effective strategies to make their cities more resourceful and resilient in the future. VOTE NOW

Cities must also become fairer. Socially and economically divided communities are less able to unite behind a common cause and are thus more fragile and vulnerable. World Mayor is looking for mayors who work towards greater equality and fairness and instil a sense of solidarity across their communities. Mayors should also be willing to share some of their powers with the people they are elected to serve. VOTE NOW

Cities must become greener. A healthy environment is essential for people’s well being. Lofty long-term goals are not enough. New developments have to serve the interest of all, not just a few. World Mayor will acclaim mayors who every year conduct a ‘green audit’ to measure environmental improvements. VOTE NOW

Code of Ethics
for city leaders

The City Mayors Foundation and the World Mayor Project were established in 2003 to promote, encourage and facilitate good local government. To strengthen local government further, a Code of Ethics for city leaders, who wish to perform their duties beyond all reproach, has been devised. MORE


World Mayor Prize sculpture
shows courage and conviction

City Mayors commissioned French artist Manuel Ferrari to design a sculpture that was as unique as the city of the winning mayor. City Mayors' senior fellow, Tann vom Hove, said: “We asked Manuel Ferrari to produce a design that shows what an inspirational mayor can achieve if he builds on strong foundations.” MORE
