Are We Europe wins the Dutch nomination for the European Charlemagne Youth Prize

30 March 2017

Are We Europe has been selected as the Dutch nomination for the European Charlemagne Youth Prize 2017. Jury member Jeroen Lenaers says about the project:
"Young people see the opportunities that Europe offers them, such as studying or working abroad, and meeting new people from different cultures. By writing articles and producing videos, Are We Europe shows how today's youth feels about Europe."

About the ECYP
The Charlemagne Youth Prize is organised by the European Parliament and the International Charlemagne Prize Foundation in Aachen and is awarded each year to projects run by young 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.

The three winning projects will be chosen from the 28 projects nominated by national juries in the individual EU member states. This year the financial rewards are higher than in previous years: the first prize will be awarded €7,500, second prize €5,000 and third prize €2,500.

Representatives of all 28 national winning projects will be invited to the Charlemagne Youth Prize award ceremony in Aachen in May 2017.
