Submit the Story of your Local Hero for the #FindYourLocalHero Campaign

 

Deadline: September 15, 2018

 

Is there an activist in your community who is below the age of 30 and has inspired you? Someone who started an initiative, motivated others to become more civically engaged or played a crucial role in an organisation? Now it’s time to share their story with the world!

 

Through the #FindYourLocalHero campaign they are looking to uncover, with your help, the hidden everyday heroes in your communities! For this, they are looking for story submissions. The stories will be featured on the #EuropeanHeroes website and social media pages. Moreover, for the best submissions they receive, they will help raise the profile of your Local Hero across the continent, and spread the word about the cause he/she is working on.

 

Benefits

European exposure to the people you nominate, and a chance to raise awareness about their initiatives.
