The 2021 World Mayor Prize and Commendations will be conferred on mayors who have been showing leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and who are now aiming to make their cities more resilient economically, structurally, socially and environmentally. In fact: Stronger | Fairer | Greener. The organisers of the World Mayor Project are looking for mayors who have shown exceptional leadership skills but also, and more importantly, acted at all times with compassion towards those most affected by Covid-19. The pandemic has shown how vulnerable even the richest cities are when confronted with a disaster like Covid-19. Forward-looking city leaders will now begin to re-think how their communities can be better protected against future threats, both natural and man-made.

Claudia Sheinbaum, Mayor of Mexico City, Mexico, has been shortlisted for the 2021 World Mayor Prize.

You may wish to support her further and comment on her achievements and plans for his city.

Nominations for
Claudia Sheinbaum
Mayor of Mexico City (Mexico)

Nominated by Norma V. L. Mexico:
Mrs. Claudia Sheinbaum has shown leadership and has always worked hard, and is very focused in making Mexico City a greener, more fair and strong city.

Early in 2020, Claudia's plan and commitment to fight climate change in the city was the GLOBAL WINNER for the prestigious WWF's One Planet City Challenge, won against more than 250 cities of 53 countries all around the world. WWF stated that Claudia's plans, actions and climate agenda were "extremely impressive, and one of the strongest globally" as you can see in the full statement provided below.

Also Claudia always fights for the rights of the poorest people and works with no rest for improving the quality of life in the city. She has the program of "rescue of the public spaces" which were abandoned by the previous city administrations, and she fights for the rights of women as well. She also fights against covid-19 frontally and strongly, with contract-tracing using QR codes everywhere in her city, and her administration has reduced crime in the city by almost 40%, that's really impressive.

She also led an increase in hospitals capacity of 38%, which really helps during covid-19 pandemic. This is more than a 2 thousand increase in beds for covid-19 patients, in only 28 days!

I think Claudia should win this competition because she deserves all the recognition for her work. We trust in Claudia Sheinbaum.


Nominated by Paulina S. R., Mexico City:
Hola, voto por la Dra. Sheinbaum: Porque su formación como científica le ha valido para gestionar muy bien la pandemia, entiende de estadísticas, cálculos y ha conformado un equipo interdisciplinario que se reúne diariamente para analizar el comportamiento de la pandemia por COVID-19 y así tomar las mejores decisiones en beneficio de los habitantes. 

- Desde el principio implementó el uso obligatorio de cubrebocas 
- Su equipo generó su propio modelo epidemiológico lo que ha servido para saber dónde estamos parados con relación a la pandemia 
- La Ciudad de México es la entidad que más pruebas aplica en el país, con 22 mil diarias 
- Ha sabido equilibrar la salud y la economía de los habitantes 
- Se han otorgado numerosos apoyos económicos para los más vulnerables
- Se implementó un código QR para rastrear a los casos positivos 
- Somos la única entidad del país y de las pocas a nivel mundial en transparentar los gastos, acciones y resultados de la pandemia, sobre todo, el exceso de mortalidad,
- Se ha garantizado una cama a todos los enfermos graves; mientras que se da tratamiento a quien puede pasar la enfermedad en casa
- Gracias a su capacidad de negociación somos la entidad que lleva el mayor avance de vacunación de adultos mayores de 60 y más 
- En todas las acciones que se han implementado se anteponen las libertades y derechos de los ciudadanos 


Nominated by Paulo V. M., Mexico City:
Mi voto es para la Doctora Claudia Sheinbaum porque creo que ha sido muy responsable en la información que ha proporcionado sobre la pandemia de Covid-19  y ha sido transparente, es decir no ha tratado de maquillar o esconder cifras. 
Los ciudadanos hemos tenido a la mano la información necesaria para tomar decisiones que han cambiado nuestras vidas, me pareció que la estrategia de comunicación mediante un semáforo en el cual se explica de manera fácil, práctica y detallada lo que se puede hacer y lo que no, ha sido una herramienta fundamental.
Se ha continuado las obras que se prometieron en relación al cuidado del medio ambiente y el desarrollo de espacios para la ciencia y tecnología a través del programa PILARES.
Estoy muy feliz porque creo que la Ciudad de México ha mejorado no solo físicamente sino en materia de derechos y libertades.


Nominated by Eugenio M. R., Mexico City:
La Doctora Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, jefa de gobierno de la ciudad de México, merece ser reconocida como la mejor alcalde que afrontó la pandemia dado que su experiencia científica la condujo a tomar las mejores decisiones, en Pro de toda la gente que habitamos en la ciudad de México, realizó las mejores estrategias para que todos los sectores de la población no resultaron afectados, al contrario todos salimos beneficiados.


Nominated by Carlos V. V., Mexico City:
Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum, Ph.D., has done outstanding work in Mexico City, not only fighting corruption and insecurity (two big issues the city has been facing for a long time) but also tirelessly working to help the city overcome the COVID-19 pandemic, with the help of cutting-edge technology (c.f. C5 in CDMX) and an emphasis in human rights. A scientist herself (the only scientist-mayor Mexico has ever had, also the only PhD to ever govern in Mexico ¡AND a woman! Did I mention she is ALSO a Nobel Peace Prize laureate?) she works alongside the best scientists/experts to run the city in the best possible way.

She has also pushed for renewing public transportation and make it greener, bringing in a zero-emissions, electric bus system unique in Mexico. Further, she is close to completing her project of realizing a world-class network of cable car (aerial lift) transportation to improve transportation in a city where ground (and underground) transportation is no longer enough. This project is around 90% complete and she has made an effort to bring it first to the poorer areas that need it the most.

Under Claudia's watch, Mexico City truly IS an Innovative City of Human and Civil rights! I strongly encourage you to consider Mrs. Sheinbaum for the 20/21 World Mayor award, as she completely deserves it.
