Are you ready to be part of the solution? Join the Initiative and become a Partner City now!
As member, you are invited to use the AWI “Partner City” logo and gain access to the platform of information and news, to participate in annual meetings and to learn from each other’s best practices. In addition, you will receive the Global Active City Standard and Guidelines.
You then commit to a process so that it can meet the standard and, if it wishes, eventually become a certified Global Active City. Yours own individual pathway, which will probably last 6 months to two years, will see the implementation of yours unique vision and set of objectives. This will translate into the establishment of a management system with clear roles and responsibilities among members of your city’s alliance of stakeholder organisations. When ready, your city will be subject to an independent evaluation before securing certification.
As a recognition of the progress made and of the improvements brought to its citizens and communities, your city will then be allowed to use the Global Active City label and combine it with its various active city initiatives or programmes.
