Are you involved in a great Europe-China city-city partnership? Would you like to be recognised for your efforts?

The URBAN-EU-CHINA project is running a Powerhouse Competition to identify and promote the best examples of Europe-China city-city partnerships which focus on sustainable urbanisation. (Read about the criteria here.)

In 2018, the URBAN-EU-CHINA Powerhouse Competition Award was given to the Manchester (UK) – Wuhan (PRC) partnership who have been successfully working together for over thirty years in sustainable urbanisation, in areas including climate change, environmental protection, smart cities, and innovative healthcare. Both cities identified common challenges such as aging populations, an imbalanced allocation of medical resources, traffic congestion and climate change and together they developed remedies for these urban challenges, including smart city construction, energy, healthcare and digital innovations. This superb example of Europe-China city-city cooperation has a wealth of experience and great ideas and practices which can be used to support other Europe-China city–city partnerships develop and mature.
