The Innovation in Politics Awards 2021

This year, for the fifth time, politicians from across Europe will be recognised for their creative and courageous political projects that improve our lives as citizens. The Awards are presented regardless of party affiliation and political level, based on our European values of social balance, democracy, and human rights.

A jury of 1,032 European citizens evaluated 413 political projects, selecting 90 finalists and nine winners. At each of these nine events, we will honour their achievements so they may serve as an inspiration for others.

Meet the politicians who are currently shaping democracy in Europe, get inspired by their success stories, and celebrate them together with us.
