The European Projects Association asbl in partnership with the European Academy for Education and Social Research and the European Economic and Social Committee has launched a Campaign carried out under the slogan WHAT ARE YOU DOING...
One of the aims of the Campaign is to reward the projects financed by the European Union which had a great positive impact on a specific community, territory and sector. Besides that, the Campaign aspires to reach the goal of visibility and stronger cross boarder partnerships by rewarding the most innovative and yet beneficial project ideas submitted by professionals and young researchers.
The Campaign “WHAT ARE YOU DOING ...for a better society” gives the attention to another group of people who can contribute to an improvement of the everyday life quality not through projects but through art. A part from the rewarding of the Projects ideas, ongoing and conluded, there are other two pillars.
The Viral Movement is the second part of the Campaign “...for a better society” and its aim is to place on the map the young artists who express their views and their contribution to a better European society through photos. Their standpoint on the current issues expressed through photography can subsequently lead to new project ideas developed by the target group prized in the European Projects Awards initiative.
The third component of the Campaign is the Europa News section which is dedicated to the most current news regarding the European issues. Besides news, this section on MyEuropa platform will be dedicated to report on the activities of the organizations which work with an aim to strengthen the relationship between Regions and European Institutions (Regional offices, cities and municipalities, associations, etc.).
The sole purpose of the Campaign “...for a better society” is to connect people whose aim is to make a difference and contribute to a better more meaningful development of Europe and consequently the entire world.
The first edition of the Awards Ceremony took place in Brussels on the 28th November 2012 in the premises of the European Economic and Social Committee and rewarded projects related to the civil society development that aimed to develop policies dedicated to structural reforms, strengthening of the democracy legitimacy and promoting a more actively engaged society.
The second edition, which will take place in Brussels the 6th of June 2013, is organized in collaboration with Research Media in the Framework of the WRIC, the World Research Innovation Congress.
