A greek projet “Europe on the Ground” has won the first prize this year. The second prize was awarded to a Czech exchange programme for Erasmus students, called “Europe Meets School”, and the third prize went to an hungarian documentary road-movie, “Cycle Me Home”. The European Charlemagne Youth Prize aims to encourage the development of European consciousness among young people, as well as their participation in European integration projects.

The first prize was awarded by EP president Martin Schulz, the second by former EP president Hans-Gert Pöttering and the third by the Mmyor of Aachen, Marcel Philip.

Greece - Europe on the Ground

Europe on the Ground is an innovative youth media project that sends multicultural teams of over 50 young citizen journalists and amateur photographers to 10 European capitals each year. The young participants are given four days to write articles and produce photo galleries on subjects related to European culture and society. All contributions are then edited by professional journalists and published in six languages on the European online magazine The project aims to improve understanding between the people of Europe by making Europe more concrete for young citizens, and to use innovative forms of European journalism.

Czech Republic - Europe Meets School

The programme Europe Meets School, Prague has existed since 2008/9 and has been enabling Erasmus students to meet children in Czech schools and learn more about the Czech school system while preparing a short voluntary teaching project in which they present their home country.

Hungary - Cycle Me Home

The Cycle me Home project (Hungary) won third prize. This project started in 2011 with a documentary road movie made by film students and bike lovers travelling by bike from Madrid to Budapest. Its organisers want to create an interactive homepage, where all interested people can get involved with the project. They hope that the Cycle Me Home project can grow from a simple film project into a youth movement.


The three winning projects will receive funding of €5,000, €3,000 and €2,000 respectively. Their representatives will also be invited to visit the European Parliament in the coming months.

Representatives of the 26 projects were invited to the award ceremony on 15 May in Aachen and were awarded a diploma and a medal.

The award ceremony was organised jointly by the European Parliament and the International Charlemagne Prize Foundation and was hosted by Aachen University.

Solstice, represented by Shirley Somers, was the national winner for Ireland and Push Europe, represented by Emma Biermann, the national winner for the UK.
