European Citizens Prize Award 2013

The European Citizen's Prize was launched by the European Parliament in 2008 to recognise exceptional achievements by Europeans in the following areas:

  • Activities or actions by citizens, groups, associations or organisations having displayed an outstanding commitment to promoting better mutual understanding and closer integration between citizens of the EU’s Member States; or to facilitate cross-border or transnational cooperation within the European Union. This could also include activities or actions by citizens engaged in long-term, cross-border or transnational cultural cooperation contributing to the strengthening of a European spirit.
  • Day-to-day activities giving concrete expression to the values entailed in the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

Youthnet Hellas was awarded the European Citizen’s Prize on 16th October 2013 in Brussels, in the sector of Youth. Youthnet Hellas was awarded the prize for research, writing and presentation of the 2009 to 2012 Annual Youth Reports for Greece that were completed by an in-depended & nongovernmental organization for the first time in Greece. The Annual Youth Report is being prepared by Youthnet Hellas members and volunteers. The aim of the annual report is to closely examine and assess all the changes and events regarding the youth sector on an annual basis, in an attempt to record and evaluate the Greek youth sector, in order to make young people aware and motivate them to become active.
