Since 1993, Transparency International (TI) has been leading the fight against corruption worldwide, working in more than 100 countries as part of a broader global movement. What TI’s work has consistently proven is that corruption can be challenged. TI is calling on young people across the globe to join the anti-corruption movement and be a source of inspiration in the fight against corruption. The innovative drive of young people advocating for fairer and more equal societies around the world can be a huge asset to our growing movement. Now is the time to end corruption. In light of Transparency International’s 25th anniversary and the International Anti-Corruption Day on 9th December 2018, TI is collaborating with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to honour young people from all over the world who challenge corruption through their innovative and inspiring ideas. People between the age of 18 and 35 are invited to submit a short video clip presenting their idea on new ways to fight corruption.
The FutureAgainstCorruption Award may be conferred to activists from all walks of life. Three Finalists will be selected out of the submitted entries by the general public as well as the FutureAgainstCorruption Award Committee. In choosing the recipients, the need to recognise efforts in diverse fields of civil society and the acknowledgement of anti-corruption initiatives throughout the world will be taken into consideration. The competition will consist of two entry streams: Global and Africa. Two Award recipients will be selected from the global stream and one from the African stream. The three finalists will be invited to Berlin during the International Anti-Corruption Day festivities to be awarded with the FutureAgainstCorruption Award and to participate at a public ceremony, hosted by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and Transparency International. They will have the opportunity to present and discuss their ideas with anti-corruption experts from the German government, Transparency International and representatives from anti-corruption organisations and the media. The competition winner will also have the chance to discuss with the relevant National Chapter and the local German Cooperation office about ways of putting into practice the ideas featured in the winning video entry.
