We are looking for successful, solution-oriented projects within the intercultural dialogue!
The „Intercultural Achievement Award” (IAA) was designed as a key project of intercultural dialogue in 2014. The award honours successful, innovative projects in the field of the intercultural dialogue, both in Austria and on a global scale. The award is open to all those, who identify and make use of opportunities within intercultural communal life. It is also designed for those who have successfully explored new avenues within intercultural dialogue, who have mastered a specific challenge through intercultural actions, and who have promoted dialogue of cultures and religions through their media presence.
