Medals for Everyday Heroes

This inspirational project has handed out 100 medals for everyday heroes – ordinary people who live simple lives and show acts of bravery, courage, and compassion towards themselves and others who ought to be rewarded with a medal. The project’s intent is to acknowledge and appreciate the everyday acts of ordinary people regardless of age, sex or merit.

The jury says
This social design ponders on the concept of medals. Everyone has something to be proud of, and this project highlights the importance of exactly this. It brings out stories about people we may take for granted but should not be forgotten or unappreciated. This fascinating social design is more important than ever, reminding us that we must treat ourselves and other people with more dignity.
