Blauer Bär (Blue Bear)

This year, on 12 May, the "Blue Bear" European Prize was awarded for the ninth time in recognition of Berliners' voluntary commitment to Europe and its values.

Since the beginning, the Senate Chancellery, in cooperation with the European Commission and Buddy Bär Berlin GmbH, has donated unique Buddy Bears to be awarded to the winners. The award ceremony was eloquently moderated by Tina Knop, Florian Hauer and Dr Jörg Wojahn, with the group Tridiculous providing a wonderful backdrop.

We congratulate all winners and participants and thank them for their great work and are proud to be part of this very special event again with the specially designed trophies donated by Buddy Bär Berlin.
