German Engagement Award and Ströer join forces to strengthen voluntary commitment

The German Engagement Award and Ströer honour committed people and their encouraging commitment to a good cause. In order to strengthen voluntary engagement in Germany and make it more visible, Ströer is now supporting the German Engagement Award as a media partner. The media partnership has been agreed for three years.

From 8 September to 19 October 2022, voluntary engagement in Germany will be the focus of attention: at the Audience Award of the German Engagement Award, nominees can make their engagement visible. As a media partner, Ströer is increasing the deserved public attention and recognition for those involved on 6,000 digital city information installations nationwide. From 8 September, everyone can cast their vote and say thank you at www.deutscher-engagementpreis.de/publikumspreis

 "Volunteering is an indispensable task for society as a whole. Particularly in these times, it is becoming more and more important to rely on solidarity and to support people who need help through volunteers. With our media and the infrastructure in the public space, we are able to generate the broadest possible awareness and attention for this important work of volunteers. Because voluntary work needs to be seen, also in order to motivate more and more people to act in solidarity and to bring about a lot of positive things," says Alexander Stotz, CEO Ströer Media Deutschland GmbH, explaining the support for the German Engagement Award.

This year, 463 nominees have the chance to be awarded the German Commitment Prize and receive one of the five jury prizes or the audience award. An overview of all nominees from all over Germany can be found on the website: www.deutscher-engagementpreis.de/engagiertensuche. All six winners will be announced and honoured at the festive award ceremony in Berlin on 1 December.

The German Engagement Award is the most important award for civic commitment in Germany. It unites the competitions that encourage voluntary engagement and strengthens the appreciation of voluntary engagement.
