Rewarding solidarity initiatives to tackle the Covid-19 emergency and its consequences in Europe
The Civil Soidarity Prize will reward up to 29 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 is awarded as a one-off edition instead of the annual EESC Civil Society Prize, is 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.
Applications are now closed. 250 applications from 26 countries were received. The applications will be evaluated by a panel of experts. Winners are expected to be notified in December 2020.
Thank you to all the applicants, as well as to all those who helped spread the word about the prize.
