Prizes awarded, it’s time to prepare for the award ceremony!

This challenging time also changed the course of the Human Development Award competition, but it did not take away the joy or sincerity we enjoyed when we went with special guests to the award winners in their places of work to thank them in person for their work and hand over awards. Although the visits take place in November, the public winners will be announced at an online ceremony on December 10 at 19.00 on the Human Development Award Facebook page.

Although this year the opportunity to enjoy the festive dinner together, which was usually part of the solemn ceremony, is denied, we have found another solution - remotely, but still all together. Each of the winners received the Peculiar Dinner at Home as a gift from Skudras Metropoles and after the award we will have the opportunity to find out what is hidden in the mysterious box and what festive table the guests of the ceremony have taken care of.

To create the sense of presence and celebration, we also invite every observer of the ceremony to prepare their own festive table and share photos and/or videos of this event by posting a picture of the Human Development Award on the Facebook page here, as well as on their social networks by adding the hashtag #Cilvēkaizaugsmei2020. We invite you to do this after the closing video of the award ceremony.

The winners of the award are honoured in the following categories: for social responsibility, for outstanding contribution to education, for outstanding contribution to health and well-being, for outstanding contribution to Latvia's future, as well as a special award - for selfless work in preventing Covid-19 negative consequences.

The event would not have been possible without the support of: Swedbank, SEB banka, Latvijas Finieris, Maxima Latvija, Abbvie.

The Civic Alliance - Latvia, in cooperation with the US Embassy in Latvia, is presenting the Human Development Award in Latvia for the seventh time this year.
