Share and share alike

A new European prize for young people is being launched this month, targeting those aged 16-30 who have been involved with projects to promote understanding between people of European countries.

Organised by the European Parliament and the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen, the Charlemagne Youth Prize provides funding of EUR2,000-EUR5,000 (pound;2,252-pound;3,752) for existing projects that foster a shared sense of European identity and co-operation. The best projects from each of the 27 EU member states will be invited to Aachen, in Germany, on April 29.

As well as promoting European and international understanding, the winning projects will serve as role models for young Europeans. The organisers are looking for practical examples of Europeans living together. The projects can focus on the organisation of youth events, youth exchanges or internet projects with a European dimension. The deadline is February 8.
