The European Social Innovation Competition awards ceremony will showcase the 10 finalists of the 2019 edition, and feature the announcement of this year’s 3 winners, who will each receive a €50,000 prize. 

The theme for the 2019 European Social Innovation Competition is 'challenging plastic waste'. It was launched in February 2019 in Ljubljana, Slovenia with the aim of supporting ideas and projects that reduce plastic waste and littering by changing and improving existing processes, or by introducing brand new products and initiatives. 30 semi-finalists were selected for a 3-day training academy held in Turin, Italy where they received individual tailored coaching.

The event will also feature the announcement of the 2019 'Impact Prize Winner', an award which goes to the semi-finalist from the 2018 edition of the competition that has achieved the most significant social impact over the past year. 

At the event, you will hear from each of the 10 finalists about their projects and from expert speakers on social innovation in Europe. To attend, please register.
