GPA’s annual World Heritage City Celebration is a night to join together, revel in the year’s accomplishments, and honor an outstanding individual who has enriched our community.

You can expect a five-star evening, build your network, and get inspired by exceptional leaders. You’ll also fuel GPA’s efforts to grow the World Heritage City project by:

- Preserving and Celebrating Historical and Cultural Assets;

- Educating Global Kids with Roots;

- Building World Heritage City Awareness and Ownership;

- Extending Philadelphia’s Global Reach.

This year's honoree is Michael A. Nutter, a former two-term mayor of Philadelphia who previously spent nearly 15 years in the Philadelphia City Council.

Since leaving public office in 2016, he has remained active in public policy, government, and civic life. He is the inaugural David N. Dinkins Professor of Professional Practice in Urban and Public Affairs at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs and holds fellowships at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Chicago, and Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics.
