Transformative Cities invites you to vote for your favourite initiative – vote to transform!

What is this about?

Through an open call the Transformative Cities initiative has collected practices of transformative change from all over the world. These practices have been evaluated by a global, multidisciplinary team in a peer-review process.

Three initiatives for each category (water, energy, housing and food systems) have been chosen, adding up to twelve stories in total. Next, the Transformative Cities initiative has commissioned local journalists to dig deep and pull out the people and practices behind these transformative practices. These stories will be published on different international media-outlets, reaching a global audience.

To select the awarded stories, the public (this means you!) will vote on the top twelve initiatives via this page, starting from 6th October and ending on 6th November 2022. The voting page will display relevant information about the initiatives and provide links to media sources.

Although the popular vote will technically identify a series of “winners,” our goal is not to create competition between different political practices, but rather to put a spotlight on diverse transformative practices and encourage their spread internationally.

The winning initiatives from the 4 different categories will obtain access to training and capacity building courses for political organising and advocacy. The estimated value is 1500 euros for each winner.
