Berlin, May 9th 2017. The festive awards ceremony for the Berlin Europa Price Blue Bear (Blauer Bär) took place on May 9th, Europe Day. The PeaceBread Association was one of 21 nominees, groups and individuals, who had been recommend for the Europa Price. Even though PeaceBread was not awarded with one of the three prices, the nomination alone by the senate administration for culture and Europe has been an honour and distinction. The nomination required volunteer work with a strong contribution to the fortification of the very idea of Europe and European values.
At the ceremony in the Wappensaal at the Red City Hall (Rotes Rathaus) the senator for culture and Europe Klaus Lederer and the representative for the EU Commission Richard Kühnel thanked all the winners and nominees for their commitment in these difficult times to the great project of peace that is Europe. The many guests at the Rotes Rathaus got to know the PeaceBread project from the introduction for the nomination as well as from a performance of a improvisation theater group.
The PeaceBread Delegation consisted of : Prof. Frank Elmer, Rainer Just, Elisabeth und Adalbert Kienle.
