January 21, online ceremony, in conjunction with Basel Peace Forum 2023

The PACEY (Peace, nuclear Abolition and Climate Engaged Youth Award) was established by Basel Peace Office in 2020 as a €5000 award for a European Youth Project. In 2021, the City of Basel (Switzerland) joined and added a prize of €5000 for Beyond Europe/Global Youth Project. And we are pleased to announce that from 2023, we are joined by the Reformed Evangelical Church of Basel-Stadt with support for another award of €5000 for a second Beyond Europe/Global Youth Project, making three awards in total.

At this event, finalists in each category presented their projects/proposals. All participants at the PACEY Awards event then voted by secret ballot to determine the three winners.

The winners, each of whom will receive prizes of €5000 each plus organizational support for their project, are Peace in our Schools (Georgia), Adopt a tree, not a weapon (Democratic Republic of Congo) and Storytelling as a Catalyst of Action for Peace, Love, and Climate Justice in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa).
