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.

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.

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.

Mayors for Stronger | Fairer | Greener cities
The 2021 World Mayor Project was launched at the start of the Covid crisis and conducted during the various waves of the pandemic. Villages, towns and cities in all parts of the world fell victim to Covid. The pandemic has made it clear that cities need to become better prepared for future man-made or natural disasters. In recognition, the 2021 World Mayor Project was dedicated to Stronger | Fairer | Greener cities.

At a time, when human and civil rights in many parts of the world are questioned and, worse, violated, World Mayor 2021 has commended mayors who uphold these rights.

The list of mayors honoured by World Mayor in 2021, includes city leaders from large metropolises, medium-sized cities and small communities. Their conduct, goals and achievements have been strongly endorsed by their fellow citizens.
