EESC Civil Solidarity Prize

Rewarding solidarity initiatives to tackle the Covid-19 emergency and its consequences in Europe

The Civil Solidarity Prize rewarded 23 not-for-profit initiatives carried out by natural persons, civil society organisations or private companies which aim to tackle the Covid-19 crisis and its manifold consequences.

The overall aim of the prize, which was awarded as a one-off edition instead of the annual EESC Civil Society Prize, was to raise awareness and increase visibility of the contribution that natural persons, civil society organisations and private companies have made or are making to creating a European identity and solidarity in a way that underpins the common values that are the foundation of European integration.

Twenty-three projects are awarded the EESC Civil Solidarity Prize
