What do you want to achieve with this project?


It is time to celebrate the thousands of individuals and organizations committed to causes they care about. Share your story at The Good Lobby Awards to inspire many more citizens and organizations to lobby for change! Take a look at winning stories from last year’s TGL Awards.

The Good Lobby Awards is an annual celebration of citizen-driven projects, initiatives and campaigns. The Awards bring together and celebrate individuals from different walks of life and organizations that have been successfully championing social change.

The upcoming deadline for nominations is November 1! The Award Ceremony is expected to take place in Brussels in December. Please spread the word – forward this call, share it on Facebook with friends and colleagues, tweet about the celebration using the hashtag #TGLAwards and of course, submit your nomination through this form.

Do you need help to put your idea into practice?
