The 2018 Civil Society Prize of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will reward innovative initiatives carried out by civil society organisations and/or individuals on EU territory and aimed at raising awareness of the multiple layers and richness of European identities, exploiting the full potential of Europe's cultural wealth, facilitating access to European cultural heritage and promoting European values (respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law).

150 applications from 27 EU countries (all but Luxembourg) were received and evaluated by a panel of 10 experts. The award ceremony will take place at the EESC plenary session on 13 December 2018.
