Statement by Commissioner Vladimír Špidla on the Essl Social Prize

Social cohesion becomes concrete when the commitment comes from mainstream society. The state has a certain responsibility to bear, but private initiatives such as the Essl Social Prize show what a difference private citizens and enterprises can make. Such efforts help to shape Europe. The support that the Essl Social Prize provides for projects which help people in other parts of Europe is a convincing expression of solidarity in Europe.
