On y va – auf geht’s – let’s go

The aim of the Ideas Prize “On y va – auf geht’s – let’s go!” is to build on the different connections between people that form Europe. Whether through culture, education, welfare, health, the environment, or sport, the aim is to bring together enthusiastic EU citizens from diverse backgrounds and support them to realise charitable projects across Europe’s borders.

Under the motto “On y va – auf geht’s – let’s go!” the foundation is supporting projects which bring together participants from Germany, France and at least one other EU country. In doing so the participants have the opportunity to realise their projects on an international scale and become part of a wider network of committed European citizens.

The project is being funded by Robert Bosch Stiftung along with the Deutsch-Französisches Institut Ludwigsburg (dfi), a foundation that supports civil and social engagement in Europe.

Stay tuned to find out which projects they will be funding!
