EGF joined this year the 'Tágides Award: people who inspire us in the fight against corruption'. For EGF, as a reference company in the Environment sector in Portugal, this partnership is a contribution to, in collaboration with All4Integrity, call on civil society to get involved in the fight against corruption in Portugal.
The final ceremony of the Tágides Award will take place on 16 December, at 5pm, at Fundação Oriente, where those who inspire us in the fight against corruption will be distinguished. This event, as part of the EGF support, will be attended by Dr. Marta Neves, member of the EGF Executive Committee and Dr. Emídio Pinheiro, Chairman of the EGF Executive Committee.
The 'Tágides Award: people who inspire us in the fight against corruption' aims to identify, recognise, celebrate and reward projects, works and/or initiatives of people who stand out in the promotion of a culture of integrity and prevention and fight against corruption in Portugal, in various areas of society.
This is the list of 19 finalists (https://www.all4integrity.org/premio-tagides/finalistas/) selected by a panel of 34 jurors (https://www.all4integrity.org/premio-tagides/juri/) as the main sources of inspiration in the fight against corruption in Portugal. These 19 finalists resulted from dozens of nominees nominated by civil society.
