Awards for municipalities

Baden-Baden, Brühl, Dornstadt, Engen, Fellbach, Köngen, Karlsruhe, Lahr, Stuttgart and Ulm - these Baden-Württemberg municipalities and their local One World initiatives were honored on November 29, 2017 for their special commitment in the New Stuttgart Palace .

With their activities during the One World Days in September and October, they showed that everyone can do something for fairer life chances worldwide. The award ceremony on November 29, 2017 in the New Castle Stuttgart in the presence of Gisela Erler, State Councilor for Civil Society and Citizen Participation in the State Ministry of Baden-Württemberg, marked the conclusion of the Meine initiative. Your. One World. 2017. She presented the prizes during the awards ceremony.

29 cities and municipalities as well as one district took part in the project in 2017 with around 360 events. The award winners particularly illustrated how the United Nations' 2030 Agenda with its 17 goals for sustainable development can be implemented. Goal 1, for example, is to end poverty in all forms and everywhere. And Goal 11 aims to make cities and settlements more sustainable.

The jury, which consisted of experts from the areas of municipalities, education and partnership work, placed particular emphasis on local networking, addressing target groups, public relations and its exemplary character for other initiatives.

The initiative, which was launched by the SEZ in 2006, has taken place seven times so far, and in 2017 for the second time in cooperation with Engagement Global's Municipalities in One World (SKEW) service center. In total, almost 90 different municipalities in Baden-Württemberg took part, many of them several times. In 2017, eight municipalities took part for the first time. The aim is to raise awareness of global issues, encourage responsible actions in everyday life and strengthen local networks. Mine. Your. One World. is part of the SEZ Partnership Center and takes place as part of the One World Promoter Program.
