The Eurodesk Awards started out in 2011 with a mission to collect Eurodesk youth workers' (multipliers) most relevant, innovative, empowering and impactful projects from the local level and highlight them to European Union institutions and other European level youth organisations as good practices. In 2019, the initiative received 44 projects from 17 countries in 3 main categories. The winners of the 3 categories were decided by a jury panel. The additional prize, called the Eurodesk Network Prize was decided by the Eurodesk network.
The three categories focused on:
- 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.
