On 4 December 2019, the most courageous and creative democratic politicians came together in Berlin to share success stories about their projects. They came from the entire democratic spectrum and were selected by a jury of 1,067 European citizens.
In this interactive conference, all 80 finalists of The Innovation in Politics Awards 2019 shared insights into their inspiring projects with peers, political scientists, entrepreneurs, young people, and journalists.
Guests had the chance to meet the politicians who are currently shaping democracy in Europe and to learn about their success stories. The interactive conference format of round-table discussions was organised around the 8 awards categories: civilisation, community, democracy, ecology, human rights, jobs, prosperity, and quality of life. It invited direct dialogue, spirited exchange, and was a highly inspirational and informative experience for all participants.
The Innovation in Politics Awards 2019 took place under the joint patronage of the Federal President of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, and the Federal President of Austria, Alexander Van der Bellen.
The Governing Mayor of Berlin, Michael Müller, joined us in welcoming the participants.
