Announcing the Winners of the Engaged Cities Award

On May 16, Cities of Service announced the winners of the inaugural Engaged Cities Award. At a dinner with Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and other mayors and city leaders from around the world, we celebrated the creative and effective citizen engagement strategies of our three winners: Bologna, Italy, Santiago de Cali, Colombia, and Tulsa, Oklahoma. You can see photos from the dinner here.

The incredible work of the winners demonstrates what cities can accomplish when they are open to the ideas and talents of citizens. Each city will be awarded $70,000 to further their city’s efforts to engage their citizens to tackle problems.

On May 18, Cities of Service held our annual convening, bringing together city leaders to share ideas and build skills. Participants shared best practices and creative ideas for engaging cities to solve problems.
