To help translate these ideas into reality, three Award grants totaling €125,000 are on the line. One overall winning idea from any of the three categories outlined below will receive a grant of €75,000, while the two additional ideas will receive grants of €25,000.

Well-being Outdoors

Initiatives that will help citizens feel safe in public spaces, as well as initiatives that help create identity and a sense of belonging.

Independent Living

Healthy Lifestyle at Work and Home

Initiatives that will support a healthy body and mind, whether through a person’s surroundings or via other essentials such as exercise, sleep and diet.
