We are delighted to announce the winners of the first European Capitals of Inclusion and Diversity Award. These eight towns, cities and regions, big and small, have excelled themselves in their pursuit of a more equal and inclusive Europe. They have worked to break down barriers and build a better society for everyone regardless of age, racial or ethnic origin, religion, sex, LGBTIQ identity and disability.
Their efforts were recognised in an Awards Ceremony hosted by the European Commission with the presence from Commissioner Dalli, Vice-president Jourova and Apostolos Tzitzikostas, President, European Committee of the Regions.
During the ceremony, the public voted for an additional winner: Antequera, Spain was victorious.
