Celebrating the Silver Rose 2020 Winners - A pandemic is no excuse to bypass Human Rights.  

Due to the current health and social crisis, the SOLIDAR and SOLIDAR Foundation Board has decided the Silver Rose Ceremony will not take place this year in person*.

However, an online event will be held in honour of the winners and their work, on 10th December 2020, Human Rights Day.

Solidar is very happy to inform you that the Silver Rose winners have confirmed their presence to the online event on Thursday 10 December 2020 – 14h30 CET.
