2012 EESC CIVIL SOCIETY PRIZE: "INNOVATE FOR A SUSTAINABLE EUROPE"

13 Dec 2012
Réf.: 079 2012

On 12 December, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) awarded the 2012 Civil Society Prize to Transition Network, a grassroots organisation set up in 2007 in the UK and currently active in 34 countries. More than 1000 local communities throughout Europe are engaged in transition towards a more sustainable economic and social model.

The Civil Society Prize celebrates the achievements of civil society organisations which develop projects that have a positive impact on Europeans' lives and help promote European values. In this award, the EESC supports grassroots organisations operating at European, national and local level.

The 2012 prize sought to reward innovative initiatives and projects promoting new and sustainable economic and social practices for more inclusive communities. Presenting the awards, EESC president Staffan Nilsson said that he was "impressed by the creativity and the unique character of the three winning projects" noting how proud he was of the 2012 winners, "which have social innovation at the heart of their activities and which have shown that sustainability is not only about environmental issues."
