Since the global pandemic is still impacting people’s daily lives, this year the World Smart City Awards will take place within the context of Smart City Live 2020 (17-18 Nov), a virtual event organized by Smart City Expo World Congress.

The program will consist of a full-day, broadcast television show on day one, with interviews, debates, and success stories focusing on the impact of COVID-19, plus a program on day two featuring workshops, sessions, and side events, which will gather key players and global institutions for the purpose of tackling the challenges that lie beyond the short-term impact of the pandemic.

The World Smart City Awards (WSCA) will be one of the highlights of the upcoming event, where pioneering city strategies, projects, and ideas will be recognized based on their innovation, relevance, impact, the scope of implementation, citizen engagement, co-creation, inclusivity, feasibility, reproducibility, and multi-stakeholder collaboration, among other aspects.

The WSCA has been established in order to identify cities, projects related to the topics of the event, and innovative ideas that are making cities around the world more livable, sustainable, and economically viable. The awards also aim to promote diversity, inclusion, equity, safety, and collaboration, thus enhancing everybody’s quality of life.

The winners will be announced during the live online gala on November 18. So, if you want a chance to be considered for the award, you should submit your entry.
