Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) launches the 2021 Social Cohesion Award to recognise outstanding social action in Europe

With the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacting the most vulnerable, social action and innovation are needed more than ever. The CEB Award for Social Cohesion will award a €25,000 prize to a project that addresses pressing social issues. The competition is open to small organisations and individuals from the CEB’s 42 member countries who can nominate projects at an early stage of implementation.
