Voluntary! Committed! For Europe!

“We are not forming coalitions of states, we are uniting men”, as Jean Monnet, one of the spiritual fathers of the European Community, is quoted.

On September 29, 2021, the State of Berlin and the Representation of the European Commission in Germany once again honored exemplary, voluntary European commitment by Berliners with the European Award Blauer Bär (Blue Bear). The nomination and awarding of the Blue European Bears is intended to make this commitment visible, strengthen it and honor it. We are extremely proud to be the sponsor of this important prize.

In times like these, it is all the more important to stand hand in hand – as a society, as a country and also as a community of states.

Award Winners 2021 are:
Vanessa Schmidt and Milad Tabesch with their project Understanding Europe Germany
Berit Petzsch and Juliane Springsguth with their project Stadtlichter
Susanne Zels with the initiative Values Unite
