In 2024, EUSTORY, Körber-Stiftung and THE CIVICS Innovation Hub present the “Bridging Gaps Award”. NGOs across Europe and neighbouring countries that have successfully implemented youth projects fostering unity in polarised societies are invited to apply.

The programmes or activities should demonstrate innovation, impact, and sustainability in bridging gaps between young people with distinct national, ethnic, political, religious, or cultural affiliations. We favour programmes that include a critical reflection on the historical roots of current conflicts in their work. Geographically, the area of the Council of Europe is our first reference here.

The award shall be given to a non-governmental organisation that is constantly active in the field of civic education. The awarded organisation receives €10,000. Chosen organisations will be included in upcoming NECE, EUSTORY and/or Körber-Stiftung activities such as online webinars, workshops, or trainings.

The award ceremony will be integrated into the NECE Festival 2024 BORDERS which will take place 14-17 November in Tirana. The finalists will be invited to contribute to the festival with content-related programme items. The winner will be announced during the festival in an award ceremony.

The award is initially designed as a one-off pilot, but it is hoped that the award will be a catalyst for new alliances, activities, or collaborations.
