Rewarding excellence in civil society initiatives
The aim of the EESC civil society prize, which was created in 2006, is to reward and encourage tangible achievements and initiatives by civil society organisations at all levels, European, national, regional and local, that significantly contribute to promoting European identity and integration.
Such achievements and initiatives have to be creative and innovative and make a long-lasting and positive impact on the public's perception of Europe and the integration process.
The specific theme for each edition of the prize is set by the EESC President.
Through the award of this prize, the Committee's objective is to raise awareness of the substantial contribution which civil society organisations can make to the creation of a European identity and citizenship embodying the shared values which underpin European integration.
