The Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation (Guangzhou Award) is co-hosted by United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), World Association of the Major Metropolises (Metropolis), and the City of Guangzhou. It aims to recognize innovation in improving social, economic, and environmental sustainability in cities and regions and, in so doing, to advance the prosperity and quality of life of their citizens.
The 5th Guangzhou Award received 273 initiatives submitted from 175 cities, covering 60 countries and territories.
