Special prize for inclusion and diversity:


  • Youth and the media
  • Information and critical thinking (including Media and Information Literacy)
  • Promotion and outreach (focusing on youth participation and the youth field in general)
  • Empowerment of young people for youth participation
  • Impact on decision making


By telling stories and recognising work well done, we can inspire young people, decision makers and future applicants of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps to do youth participation better.


Better is meaningful. Impactful. Well thought through and well led initiatives. Still confused? Here are some keywords for a quality check:

  • Youth participation projects where young people are involved as equal partners with adults or leading the process on their own, with the intention to be involved, express their views on, and have decision making power or influence the decisions that concern them.
  • Media and Information Literacy and Communication projects where activities are focused on improving youth participation. Quality of information and skills of critical thinking are the key to be able to understand, make choices and influence decisions.
