Call for nominations: Schwarzkopf Europe Award 2018

Young people from all over Europe honour a decision-maker or institution that today is shaping the future of Europe in a direction they hope for.

You know an outstanding personality who helps building a European society you want to live in? You know a European who contributes to European cooperation and integration?

Each year the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe awards the “Schwarzkopf Europe Award” to institutions or persons for their inspirational and valuable work for Europe.

We are looking for nominations until the 15th August 2017. The nominee should work e.g. but not exclusively in:

  • fostering peaceful co-existence in Europe
  • protecting freedom of expression and democracy in Europe
  • standing up against repressive, undemocratic regimes, corruption, ill-treatment, or torture
  • striving for sustainable development

You can view the list of previous awardees here.

Please submit your nominations via this link by August 15th, 2017. Please prepare to briefly explain why you are nominating the person in question.

All nominations will be assessed by a jury that consists of members of the network of the Young European of the Year awardees of the Schwarzkopf Foundation. The awardee will be annouced publicly in early 2018.

We are looking forward to your nomination!
