The 14th EESC civil society prize will reward effective, innovative and creative initiatives carried out on the territory of the EU which support people with mental health conditions and promote an environment fostering mental well-being on an individual or collective basis.
It is open to non-for-profit initiatives carried out by natural persons, civil society organisations and private companies officially registered within the European Union. It has a total value of EUR 50 000 and can be shared among up to five winners.
The aim of the award is to raise awareness of the contribution that civil society can make to promoting a European identity and citizenship in a way that underpins the common values that are the foundation of European integration.
Applications are now closed. The EESC received 105 applications from 23 Member States. The applications will be evaluated by a panel of 10 experts. Winners are expected to be notified at the end of January 2024. The awards ceremony will take place during the EESC Civil Society Week in March 2024.
Thank you to all the applicants, as well as to all those who helped spread the word about the prize.
