We the people decide
what innovative politics is

The heart of the Innovation in politics awards: the JURY OF 1,000 EUROPEANS

Since 2017, we present The Innovation in Politics Awards to recognise politicians who drive positive change in their communities.

Politicians from all Council of Europe member states* can submit their innovative projects in the following categories:
Quality of Life, Economy, Ecology, Education, Democracy, Digitalisation, Human Rights, and Community.
In 2020, in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, we have added the new category Coping with Covid-19.

Every single year, these Awards can only go ahead because of the commitment and dedication of our citizens’ jury of 1,000 Europeans. It is they who select the finalists and winners.

We invite you to meet some of them and find out about their thoughts about the Awards and their contribution.
