‘Together for a stronger society’: EU Delegation gives awards to four civil society organisations in Moldova

January 25, 2021

Four civil society organisations have received awards as part of the EU Delegation to Moldova’s information campaign ‘EU-Moldova: Together for a stronger society’, dedicated to civil society and human rights.

The Media Freedom Award went to the Nord News portal from Bălți, the Protection of Minority Rights Award to the Noi-Viitorul Luminos Association from Falesti, the Human Security Award to the Human Rights Embassy Association, and the Advocacy for Promoting Change Award to the Promo-LEX Association.

The campaign was launched on 7 December (ahead of International Human Rights Day, which is celebrated on 10 December) to support the efforts of civil society in key areas for the respect and promotion of human rights, and focused on a wide range of people: representatives of the associative sector and local public authorities, students, teachers and beneficiaries of European Union assistance projects.

The campaign began with several flash mobs organised by members of Euroclubs and EU Information Centres in Moldova, which took place in nine localities: Chisinau, Durlești, Orhei, Leova, Bălți, Ungheni, Soroca, Ialoveni and Sârcova village from Rezina district.

We would like to encourage civil society organisations to persevere and remain generators of change for the betterment of the country and the lives of its citizens. The European Union will remain close to you, also via the assistance provided to this sector, because we are together for a stronger society,” said Peter Michalko, Ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of Moldova.

The ‘EU-Moldova: Together for a Stronger Society’ campaign will continue until the end of February 2021, mainly online.
