Europe's highest award for clean urban transport

The CIVITAS Awards highlight some of the most ambitious, innovative, and successful sustainable urban mobility work currently being carried out.

They provide a prime platform for towns and cities to demonstrate their excellence in the field, both in terms of policymaking and implemented measures, whilst also having their efforts recognised by the European Commission.

Winners serve as role models to other towns and cities across Europe, inspiring them in their own initiatives to make cleaner and better urban transport.

The call has been launched for applications for this year's CIVITAS Awards! Towns and cities who are a CIVITAS Forum member can now submit their entries to win Europe's most prestigious prizes for clean urban transport. If your town or city is not yet a Forum member, please complete and sign the CIVITAS Forum Declaration.

Applicants can win awards in four different categories:

  • The "Bold Measure" Award for a daring and innovative approach that has yet to be widely implemented and positions the city as a pioneer in its respective thematic area;
  • The “Take Up” Award for cities a city that has successfully have been successfully transferred from one city to another;

Award-winning activities are showcased to a European audience as examples of sustainable urban mobility excellence and promoted to the press.
