The SozialMarie Prizes were awarded!

On Tuesday, May 1st 2018, in Vienna’s ORF RadioKulturhaus and for the 14th time already, 15 socially innovative projects were awarded the SozialMarie prizes.

The first prize, endowed with 15,000 euros, this year went to the Czech project Housing First for Families in Brno, which provides families affected by homelessness council apartments and guides them in the phase of starting new lives.

The second prize, worth 10,000 euros, went to the Slovak project Book Club PAĽIKERAV, where young Roma review books and publish these as videos, they moderate book presentations and so break established stereotypes.

The third prize (5,000 euros) went to the Austrian project, The Viennese Kitchen: a DIY-kitchen that helps people who have been affected by homelessness arriving in their new apartment. The kitchen was developed with those affected as well as with experts from different fields, a buddy system enables reproduction and facilitates networking.

A further twelve projects from Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Croatia were awarded a 2,000 euro prize each.

We congratulate all prize winners most heartily!
