Join us online on 27 April to ‘meet’ the winners of the 2023 European Capitals of Inclusion and Diversity Awards. Over 78 towns, regions and cities across Europe competed for the Awards in three categories in this second edition. Find out live who wins and learn about the work they are doing to build a Union of equality.
The Award sets out to recognize and highlight best practices in diversity and inclusion that can then go on to become a source of inspiration to other places in Europe and help build more diverse and inclusive environments for citizens.
It rewards local authorities pursuing best practices that promote diversity as a source of richness and innovation, contribute to inclusive policies and foster a feeling of belonging amongst citizens.
The Award will recognise three towns, cities or regions in two categories:
There is also a special Award for local authorities fostering LGBTIQ equality with three winners (the number of inhabitants is not a factor for this Award).
Prominent representatives of EU institutions will reveal the Award winners live and we’ll hear from the Mayor of each winning local authority.
The audience will get the chance to have their say by voting for the ‘public vote winner’ towards the end of the ceremony.
