Since the year 2000 SOLIDAR organises annually its Silver Rose Awards in the European Parliament in cooperation with the S&D Group, an occasion to celebrate Civil Society Organisations and individuals whose extraordinary struggles contribute greatly to social justice and solidarity throughout the world.

Nominations are made by Civil Society Organisations and selected by a jury composed of its representatives, trade unionists and policy makers. The winners are chosen based on their significant involvement in Civil Society activities and their contribution to social justice and solidarity worldwide. The people and organisations who have had the honour to come up on the Silver Rose stage to receive their award vary from grass roots human rights activists, to academics who have done research on the societal consequences of inequality, to undercover journalists who have shun light on lower class working conditions.

The ceremony brings together a wide audience of like minded individuals with backgrounds in civil society, trade union and politics, to strengthen once again our alliance and inspire us all to make our efforts and activities matter to achieve a world with social justice and solidarity.

This year SOLIDAR is organising its 14th edition of the ceremony that will take place Tuesday June 14th, 19:00, in the European Parliament, Brussels. The Award will be given in four different categories: Together for Social Europe, Building Learning Societies, Organising International Solidarity and the Lifetime Achievement Award.
