Hace menos de una hora The Academy of Urbanism, con sede en Gran Bretaña, acaba de designar a Bilbao como The 2018 European City of the Year. Donostia obtuvo ese galardón en 2016.

Eran 3 las ciudades finalistas Bilbao, Ljubljana and Vienna y en la gala que se está celebrando esta noche en Londres, el jurado a indicado que su elección para este galardón es la ciudad vasca.

Para elegir la ciudad ganadora de este galardón, una delegación de  The Academy of Urbanism ha visitado en fechas recientes las tres ciudades elegidas como finalistas.

David Rudlin, Director de la academia lo explica así:

 “Bilbao is a great example of the wholesale transformation of a former industrial city – not just physically, but socially, economically and culturally. The rejuvenation it has achieved over the past 30 years is nothing short of remarkable. All of this has been achieved through bold and effective leadership, the likes of which has seen the city run debt-free since 2010.”
(“Bilbao es un gran ejemplo de la transformación total de una antigua ciudad industrial, no solo física, sino también social, económica y cultural.El rejuvenecimiento que ha logrado en los últimos 30 años es extraordinario. Todo esto se ha logrado a través de un liderazgo audaz y efectivo, como el que ha visto a la ciudad sin deuda desde 2010 “.)
