On 1 July 2023, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) opened applications for the 14th EESC Civil Society Prize. The prize will reward effective, innovative and creative initiatives carried out on the territory of the European Union (EU) which support people with mental health conditions and promote an environment fostering mental well-being on an individual or collective basis. It is open to non-for-profit initiatives carried out by natural persons, civil society organisations and private companies officially registered within the EU. It has a total value of EUR 50,000 and can be shared among up to five winners. The aim of the award is to raise awareness of the contribution that civil society can make to promoting a European identity and citizenship in a way that underpins the common values that are the foundation of European integration.
