Minister of Economic Affairs of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Garrelt Duin, singled out three projects as models for addressing urgent social issues by honouring them with the N.I.C.E. Award 2016.

Two projects take the top spot this year: “Makerversity” and “Refugee Open Cities” each receive EUR 8,000 prize money. Based in London and Amsterdam, Makerversity is a platform for creative young entrepreneurs within the global maker movement. The Berlin Refugee Open Cities project improves the quality of life in refugee camps through personal involvement.

The second prize (EUR 4,000) goes to the Dortmund based project “Public Residence: the Chance”, in which the creative currency “Chances” has transformed citizens of Borsigplatz in Dortmund into innovative shapers of their neighbourhood.

The jury honoured the London initiative “Julie’s Bicycle” with the “Achievement Award”, a non-monetary prize. For ten years now, this initiative has been committed to encouraging cultural and creative industries to contribute more actively to fighting climate change. MORE
