This afternoon the Committee awarded its annual civil society prize to no less than six civil society organisations. A joint first prize was awarded to LIBERA international and Confindustria Sicilia (Italy). Two second prizes were awarded to two European organisations: the European Association of History Educators (EUROCLIO) and Volonteurope. Lastly, two third prizes were awarded to the Fondation Nicolas Hulot pour la Nature et l’Homme (France) and to the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO). You can read all about the winners here. Both LIBERA and Confindustria Sicilia received their joint first prizes for their work in fighting against organised crime and the enlarged Presidency will be travelling to Palermo next week for a special award ceremony to honour and support their courageous stance.
