Civil Solidarity Prize

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) awards COVID-19 initiatives.

The Civil Solidarity 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, ‘Civil Society against Covid-19’, awarded as a one-off edition instead of the annual EESC Civil Society Prize, is to raise awareness and increase the 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.

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 and/or individuals at all levels, European, national, regional and local, that significantly contribute to promoting European identity and integration.

The deadline for submitting applications is 30 September 2020 at 12:00 noon (CEST). The awards ceremony will take place during the EESC plenary session in January 2021.

The contest rules and other documents are found here.

The application form is available here.
