Social Design Award 2018 The Final Dash in Our Readers' Competition!
Joint activities, joint projects and improved cooperation: SPIEGEL ONLINE and SPIEGEL WISSEN are looking for the best ideas for creating a vibrant neighborhood. Send us your proposal by August 31!
Living side by side, but without interacting? No, thanks! A growing number of people are joining together in neighborhood networks, meeting up at house parties organized for neighbors, getting involved on behalf of those needing help and bringing life to their neighborhood through associations and initiatives.
SPIEGEL ONLINE and SPIEGEL WISSEN magazine, in cooperation with the home improvement retailer BAUHAUS, are now looking for the best projects, activities and initiatives for the Social Design Award that aim to transform mere coexistence into a community of neighbors. We would love to have you participate. All you have to do is send us your proposal by August 31! Two prizes will be awarded, each with a purse of 2,500 euros. The jury will select the winner of the first prize, and SPIEGEL ONLINE readers will also select a winner from a shortlist for the second prize that will be announced at the beginning of October.
You can find the exact competition rules here and in the current issue of SPIEGEL WISSEN: "Stay Cool."
You can read about last year's finalists (and the winners -- "Banana Republic," which won the reader prize, and "Käthe's Garden," which won the jury prize) here.
