Charlemagne Youth Prize [9th edition]

This week, we have been invited by the European Parliament to take part to the ninth edition of Charlemagne Youth Prize Ceremony - an annual youth contest awarded in Aachen, Germany.

The Charlemagne Youth Prize is organised jointly by the European Parliament and the International Charlemagne Prize Foundation in Aachen and awarded each year for projects run by people aged between 16 and 30.

The winning projects should provide models for young people living in Europe and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community. Past winners include youth exchange programmes and artistic and internet projects with a European dimension.
