The AIPH World Green City Awards 2022 are designed to champion ambitious nature-orientated approaches to city design and operation. Specifically, it recognizes public initiatives relying on a greater use of plants and nature to create better city environments – helping to fulfil local aspirations for improved economic, social and environmental resilience. There are six categories, including “Living Green for Climate Change,” which aims to tackle the root causes and effects of climate change in order to build more livable and resilient cities. Living Green solutions such as street trees, green roofs and walls, and parks and gardens, all contribute to moderating the impacts of climate change. In solving problems such as the urban heat island effect and poor local air quality, nature-based-solutions deliver quantifiable cash value to city authorities as well as enhancing the quality of life for citizens.
Applications are due March 14, 2022. To learn more and apply, visit AIPH World Green City Awards.
