World Mayor Prize - Congratulations to our member city Gdansk and its Mayor Adamowicz

ALDA congratulates the mayor Pawel Adamowicz of Gdansk Municipality (PL), for being among the finalists as for the awarding of the prestigious World Mayor Prize.


Pawel Adamowicz, 51 years old, has been a city chief since 1998. He was called a mayor who has accepted the challenges posed by migration, but is also convinced of its long-term benefits. Facing pressure of populism, he and his community have made exceptional efforts to welcome refugees and integrate migrants. The prize is awarded every two years by the think tank City of Mayors Foundation.

The City of Gdansk became a member of ALDA in 2016, and is particularly engaged in our activities promoting local democracy in the Eastern Partnership area, especially in Ukraine. Among our key common objectives, the launch of the Local Democracy Agency in Odessa.

For ALDA, the fact of having Mr Adamowicz among finalists is already a great success that we want to celebrate.
