Institución Futuro (Spain) was awarded the "emerging institute" prize for its Tax Freedom Day campaign and website which allows citizens to calculate how many days each year they work solely to pay taxes and identify the day in which they begin working for themselves. The campaign aims to raise consciousness of the tax burden, remind the population that public services are not free, and encourage citizens to demand fiscal responsibility from policymakers.
