We are delighted to announce the finalists for the second European Capitals of Inclusion and Diversity Award. All these towns, cities and regions, big and small, have excelled themselves in their contribution to a more equal and inclusive Europe. They have worked in a planned, systematic and sustained manner to achieve new outcomes of respect, empowerment, and participation for people across the diversity of age, racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, sex, disability and lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, non-binary, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) identity.
The winners in each category will be revealed on 27 April.
