European Charlemagne Youth Prize 2020

The European Parliament is seeking applications for the 2020 European Charlemagne Youth Prize.

Since 2008, the European Parliament together with the ‘Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen’ have each year been inviting young people from all EU Member States to submit projects run by and for youth showing an active participation in the development of Europe.

The ‘European Charlemagne Youth Prize’ is awarded to projects, which:

  • promote European and international understanding;
  • foster the development of a shared sense of European identity and integration;
  • serve as a role model for young people living in Europe and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community.

The projects can focus on the organisation of various youth events, youth exchanges or online projects with a European dimension.

They are looking for projects promoting European and international understanding; foster the development of a shared sense of European identity and integration; and provide role models for young people living in Europe and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community.

The prize for the best project is €7,500, the second €5,000 and the third €2,500. As part of the prize, the three European laureates are invited to present their projects in the European Parliament in Brussels or Strasbourg.

Closing date for applications is Friday, 31 January 2020.
