We have partnered up with the BMW Group in order to launch the UNAOC-BMW Award for intercultural Innovation. This annual Award will select highly innovative initiatives that are advancing cross-cultural understanding among different communities and cultures around the world.
For future recipients of the Award, alongside a monetary prize totaling $50,000, winning will mean receiving direct support from the UNAOC and its powerful network composed of civil society, corporate, government, media and foundation partners in order to scale up and replicate them in various settings.
By encouraging new intercultural methods and approaches, the Award is unique in its category and offers very promising and inspiring results. A rigorous competitive selection process will be conducted by an international jury composed of renowned scholars, experts, and members of the BMW Group and the UNAOC. Projects will be evaluated against a comprehensive set of criteria.
We would like to invite you to participate in this exciting and promising project. There are several ways to get involved:
