München / New York . For the past ten years, the BMW Group and the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) have invited organisations around the world to apply for the Intercultural Innovation Award. The two partners have used this award to support innovative projects promoting intercultural understanding.

“As we celebrate ten years of this ever-growing partnership between UNAOC and the BMW Group and now with the support of Accenture, we shall continue to collaborate to magnify the work of cutting-edge social innovators and promote diversity and inclusive societies”, said Mr. Miguel Ángel Moratinos, High Representative for UNAOC.

“In our anniversary year, we are not only celebrating a very successful partnership, but also using the Intercultural Innovation Award once again to appeal to people’s feeling of community”, said Ilka Horstmeier, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG responsible for Human Resources and new patron of the Intercultural Innovation Award.

This takes on a whole new meaning in the face of Covid-19. As Horstmeier said, “We can only manage the added challenges of the pandemic by taking action together.”

Wanted: projects for an inclusive and diverse society

This year, the focus will primarily be on projects promoting gender equality, condemning violent extremism, hatred, and prejudices and advocating for art, culture, and sports as vehicles for social change.

To leverage the social impact of the chosen projects, all ten finalists will receive the same financial assistance. For this reason, with the support of the consulting firm Accenture, the partners have increased the financial award to USD 200,000. In addition, the finalists will receive individual and professional consulting and participate in various training sessions and workshops. Recipients will also have access to an exclusive network of leaders (“Intercultural Leaders”) who actively promote intercultural dialogue worldwide.

Interested organisations are invited to submit their application:

by 5:00 p.m. (EST) on Thursday, 27 May 2021

United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC)

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) is an initiative of the UN Secretary-General, which aims to improve understanding and cooperative relations among nations and peoples across cultures and religions and help counter the forces that fuel polarization and extremism.

UNAOC was established in 2005, at the initiative of the Governments of Spain and Turkey, under the auspices of the United Nations. In January 2019, H.E. Mr. Miguel Ángel Moratinos assumed the position of High Representative for UNAOC, succeeding H.E. Mr. Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser, who succeeded H.E. Mr. Jorge Sampaio.

UNAOC maintains a global network of partners, including states, international and regional organizations, civil society groups, foundations, and the private sector, to improve cross-cultural relations between diverse nations and communities.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
