Frauenkirche (Cathedral of Munich)
An evening of great emotions
On the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the European Culture Awards TAURUS were awarded for the first time in cooperation between the Frauenkirche Foundation and the Europäische Kulturforum eV.
Head of government honored for environmental protection
Prince Albert II of Monaco and the German Ocean Foundation received the TAURUS for their commitment to environmental protection. “With this prize, the European Cultural Forum honored the exemplary commitment of the two foundations to nature and marine conservation. The head of government and Frank Schweikert from the German Ocean Foundation have been committed to saving waters worldwide for many years. It's five to twelve, because the largest living space on our planet seems to be in danger. Overfishing, climate change, plastic waste: the oceans are threatened by many factors. They have made it their task to sensitize people to this and to intensify the need for efficient marine and water protection, which above all is supported by a large majority, and they also carried this message to Dresden.
