Have you delivered a Social Action Project between 2009 and 2019? 

Active Citizens is running a 10-year anniversary competition to find the best projects globally!

How it works

The competition is open from 17:00 (British Summer Time - BST) on Monday 19th August 2019 to 23:59 (BST) on Sunday 8th September 2019.

Following this, a selection panel will put forward five Social Action Projects to a general public vote on the Active Citizens Facebook page . The Active Citizens community will then vote to choose the most popular Social Action Project — the project that receives the most 'Likes' will be the overall winner!

The winning applicant will be invited to present their project at the Active Citizens 10-year anniversary event, in London, between the 5th-8th November 2019!  

In addition, the four runner up projects from the public vote will be included in the 10-year anniversary publication, while the selection panel will also choose a winning project for five different categories that will be represented at the 10-year anniversary exhibition at the British Council Headquarters in London.
