23rd Bursztynowy Mieczyk Award Gala
Bursztynowy Mieczyk and Bursztynowy Katamaran prizes have been awarded!
Prestigious Maciej Płażyński Bursztynowy Mieczyk awards and numerous distinctions were presented on December 1 to Pomeranian non-governmental organisations, associations and foundations during a ceremonial gala in the European Solidarity Centre in Gdańsk.
The idea and concept of Bursztynowy Mieczyk Award, which has been granted since 1994, emerged in the Regional Information and NGOs Support Centre. Bursztynowy Mieczyk is the first undertaking of this kind in our country because it reflects the recognition for non-governmental organisations’ activities at a regional level.
