The Award

The Foundation highlights and honours exceptionally successful work for solidarity within or between communities by assigning once a year the “Paul K. Feyerabend Award – A World of Solidarity is Possible”. The award acknowledges and encourages remarkable accomplishments that represent a true source of inspiration.

The award is offered to exemplary individuals, communities or organisations that brought about crucial and lasting change for community solidarity under difficult circumstances. Each award comprises a plaque/ certificate and a small financial envelope.

Beyond the concrete recognition of accomplishments, the goal of the Paul K. Feyerabend Award is to diffuse information about the feasibility and positive results of solidarity-centred work. This is why the award is usually delivered by the relevant Nominator(s) during a public ceremony.
