Politeama is an initiative promoted by the Social Welfare Policy Research Institute (POLIBIENESTAR) of the University of Valencia, in order to recognize and reward disinterested actions of Everyday Heroes to improve the world.

There are many people who altruistically help their neighbors, friends, family or unknown people and all these people contribute to make our world better. In times of permanent crisis we need people who take care of their environments without expecting to receive something in return. This is what we understand with the concept of Everyday Heroes.

Politeama invites anyone, over 18 years old and from anywhere in the world, to make candidacies of Everyday Heroes, who have taken some concrete or periodic action, which has meant a positive and substantial improvement in their environment. The only condition is that these everyday heroes are anonymous, that is, that no positive action has been developed around their work profession.

What motivates us to promote the recognition of the Everyday Heroes?

The media are already making daily negative news of our surroundings in the international press. However, POLIBIENESTAR wants to show and reward those anonymous heroes who in day to day do good actions around them.

“We will echo the wonderful things we do and that happen around us to improve the lives of other people.” Let us echo what the world does to “improve the welfare, sustainability and quality of life” of other people.
