Role models for young Europeans
The Charlemagne Youth Prize, which is jointly organised by the European Parliament and the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen (Germany), is awarded to projects undertaken by people between 16 and 30 years old that help to promote understanding between citizens of different European countries. The winning projects should serve as role models for young people living in Europe and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community. The projects can focus e.g. on the organisation of various youth events, youth exchanges or internet projects with a European dimension.
Total prize money of 10 000 euros
The three winning projects will be awarded funding of € 5 000, € 3 000, and € 2 000 respectively. They will also be invited to visit the European Parliament in the autumn. The representatives of the national winning projects will not only be invited to take part in the Charlemagne Youth Prize award ceremony on 15 May 2012 , but two days later will attend the City of Aachen International Charlemagne Prize award ceremony during a four-day trip to Aachen.
