Among the many applications for this prize, which was offered by the German-French Institute and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, we were not only selected, but also received so many votes through the public voting process that we are one of the six prize winners.
We would like to thank all those who voted for us and motivated friends and acquaintances to vote for us!
We are not only happy about the high award with more than 5000,- EUR prize money, but especially about the Europe-wide recognition of our more than 24 years of work for understanding, friendship and cooperation.
We would also like to thank all those who supported our application with their declarations of approval and the work associated with it: Mayor Christel Sprößler and Selina Puntheller (Roßdorf), Mayor (ret.) Meinhard Kronister and Sadeta Karisik (Vösendorf), as well as Anne-Marie Lheureux-Herbez (Billy Montigny).
Together with our EuropaRad friends in Roßdorf/Rhön, we will now work on the big annual tour from
20-26.05.2019 for our 25th anniversary and other activities on the topic of "Europaskeptizismus". Invited to actively collaborate here are also the Hessian Ministry of Europe, Pulse of Europe, members of the European Parliament and of course all of you.
The administrative district of Darmstadt / Darmstadt-Dieburg once a year awards the Europa Award.
It decorates individuals, associations, club or schools having shown outstanding engagement, creativity and sustainability in building a united Europe.
The communities are nominating the candidates.
This recognition awarded by the Hessian Ministry of Justice Integration and Europe honours the most vitalized European municipal partnership.
