We are pleased to announce the awardees of our Stop-TTIP call for campaigns.

The international jury of experts selected seven campaign proposals from seven European countries. Altogether we received applications from 12 countries. The selected campaigns each receive a financial support of 4.000 € in funding. We are pleased to announce the awardees of our Stop-TTIP call for campaigns.

This support is provided by the European platform CitizensforEurope and managed by the Berlin based platform member Citizens For Europe. The campaigns aim to inform the local communities and push political decision-makers to stand against the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership between the EU and the United States.

The results will be documented and made available on www.citizensforeurope.eu. We congratulate the awardees and thank all the applicants for their contribution and for the time and effort invested in their submissions.
