The Winspiration Award
Once a year at Winspiration, we choose a special person or association that has made a difference to their community and indeed, the world, and brought about positive change by their actions.
These awards recognise and reflect the spirit of Winspiration and help to keep that positive feeling moving forward.
We are happy to accept any proposed candidates for the Winspiration Award throughout the year.
On May 7th 2017, in the city of Los Angeles, California, USA, we will reveal the best project of the year and we look forward to your participation in this wonderful event!

OUR WINSPIRATION AWARD 2016 LAUREATS
Oasis of Peace – Wahat al-Salam Neve Shalom.
Oasis of Peace is an initiative followed in Israel, where Arabs and Jews had agreed very specifically to live together, to go to school together and to be united.
It is a community of Palestinians and Jews dedicated to building peace and equality in Israel and the surrounding region. Situated equidistant from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv-Jaffa, the village was established in 1970 by Fr. Bruno Hussar on the land of the Latrun Monastery.
The community is a model of equality, mutual respect and cooperation that challenges patterns of racism and discrimination as well as the continued conflict.
The community has established educational institutions based on its ideals, and conducts activities focused on social change. A primary school, a School for Peace, a Pluralistic Spiritual Community Center, a Youth Center and a hotel were all founded for this purpose.
Many community members work on peace and reconciliation projects. The village already consists of 60 families and will soon be up to 150.
A brief explanation about the organization can be found here:
