Introducing the European Capitals of Inclusion & Diversity Award

30/11/2021 | 0 comments

On 22 November 2021, the European Commission launched the European Capitals of Inclusion and Diversity Award.

This award is one of the deliverables of the EU anti-racism action plan and LGBTIQ Equality Strategy 2020-2025 and it shows how action at all levels is essential if we want to turn the tide and build a Union of Equality.

The new Award will give recognition to those towns, cities and regions taking concrete steps towards equality at a time when intolerance and discrimination are on the increase in some parts of society. It is open for local authorities to apply and is a chance to show the world what these ‘capitals of inclusion’ are doing to create more diverse and inclusive spaces for their citizens.

The Award is open to all local authorities in the EU who are building fairer societies by promoting diversity and inclusion in terms of:

  • Sex
  • Racial or ethnic origin
  • Religion or belief
  • Disability
  • Age
  • LGBTIQ identity

This means your town, city, or region could get the recognition it deserves for building an environment that allows everyone to feel safe and fulfil their potential.

Award categories

There are two main categories:

  • Local authorities with less than 50 000 inhabitant
  • Local authorities with more than 50 000 inhabitants

A special Award will also be given for Roma inclusion. You can submit your application in any EU official language.


You can submit your application until 15 February 2022 12:00 CET. The Award ceremony will be held on 28 April 2022.
