Eurodesk Awards 2018 winners announcement

19 April 2018

The Eurodesk Awards were established in 2011 to collect Eurodesk multipliers’ most inspiring and innovative local projects and highlight them as best practice at European level to the youth sector. All projects competing in the Eurodesk Awards competition aim at helping young people discover and seize the numerous opportunities Europe has to offer both in terms of going abroad for taking part in non-formal learning and being an active citizen in their countries, as well as within the European Union.

 

In 2018, the initiative received 36 projects from 12 countries in 3 main categories that were also competing for a special prize:

 

  • Mobility awareness activities/projects aimed at promoting mobility and its benefits to European young people.
  • Active citizenship activities/projects organised for raising awareness on the importance of active citizenship within Europe and the European Union.
  • Solidarity actions/projects carried out to help young people with fewer opportunities, including NEETs, young refugees, in accessing youth opportunities and learning about their rights.
  • Additionally, all projects competed for the Eurodesk Network Prize that was selected by national coordinators for the most inspiring project from the entries.

 

 

The winners of the 3 categories were decided by a jury panel, consisting of 5 representatives of youth organisations and EU institutions. They met on the 17 April 2018 to make their decision. The winners will be awarded with their prizes at the Eurodesk Awards Ceremony on 23 May 2018 in the European Parliament. The event is organised under the patronage of Jeroen Lenaers, MEP.
