Liveable cities

Published on February 1, 2021

The Liveable Cities Philippines and the League of Cities of the Philippines have joined hands to promote the Bloomberg Philanthropies' 2021 Global Mayors Challenge.

The 2021 Global Mayors Challenge is an innovation competition that will identify and accelerate the most ambitious ideas developed by cities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fifteen grand prize winners will be chosen at the final round and will receive $1 million each to implement their ideas.

The challenge will offer an enhanced program of support designed to meet the needs and ambitions of cities today. For the first time, the Challenge will be a global competition, a reflection of the urgency felt by cities around the world to develop new approaches amid the pandemic. Cities with a population of 100,000 or more are welcome to submit their boldest ideas at any stage of development. First 500 cities to RSVP will receive additional guidance from Bloomberg Philanthropies through a series of virtual meetings with global experts.

Applications close on March 21, 2021. To RSVP for this competition, please register at
