City of Bremen partnership awards
- A forwarded message from the bremen initiative
Create the future. together: The bremen partnership award -
putting real flesh on the bones of the growing global commitment to
Quality of life in cities is a concern for all of us. We need to set the
course now - for a future that has already begun and needs to be shaped
in a sustainable way.
Many projects run by businesses and municipalities as partners are
already facing this responsibility. The Bremen partnership award - to be
conferred in April 2001- is designed to reward the partnership projects
that are really working. Launched by bremen initiative - the global
campaign for business and municipality partnerships led by the Free
Hanseatic City of Bremen, Germany with wide international support- it
will focus on projects striving to make cities more liveable and better
places in which to do business. bremen initiative is not only looking
for project plans but above all for real projects that have already been
implemented. And this is the worldwide uniqueness of the award: the
celebration of partnerships between business and municipality offering
tangible solutions for an urban quality of life which is favourable to
economic activities and above all sustainable.
When and where?
Bremen initiative now invites the submission of best practices from all
parts of the world which have been built on three key pillars: urbanity,
challenge of sustainability, and partnership. Awards will be given in
five categories: each one will include a grant to help enable the
success story of the project to be continued or responsibility for
future generations secured. The award ceremony will take place at the
2nd International Conference on "business and municipality - new
partnerships for the 21st century" to be held in Bremen on 4-7 April
The award categories and selection criteria have been carefully
developed on the basis of an extensive international expert survey. They
span the whole range of sustainability issues such as: efficiency,
protection of resources, global responsibility, social justice,
diversity, citizens' participation, built and natural environment of
urban settings, and more.
All applications will be evaluated by partners of bremen initiative as
well as urban experts in accordance with a fully transparent procedure.
The shortlisted finalists in each category will then be presented to an
international jury for final evaluation and decision.

municipality partners, should be forwarded online or digitally and in
