The prize recognises outstanding international initiatives for city excellence by outstanding individuals and organisations who have contributed with urban initiatives, policies or projects which epitomise foresight, good governance or innovation in overcoming the challenges faced by cities. Lecture and forum discussions will focus on four key pillars that are instrumental to the success of every city - liveability, vibrancy, sustainability and quality of life.
