This year, we were enthusiastic that we represented our country and received the prize for the second consecutive year, which resulted in a visit to Aachen for a part of the organizers of the ISWinT festival.
The prize, jointly awarded by the European Parliament and the International Charlemagne Foundation, is open to initiatives run by young people aged 16 to 30 years old, involved in projects helping to promote understanding between people from different European countries and cultures.
The European Charlemagne Youth Prize was as impressive as we imagined it to be. We met people from all over EU and found out about their unique projects, but also shared our points of view on EU, European elections, youth or life in general.
From these four days spent in Aachen, we realized how important is for the EU, young people's involvement in promoting unity, despite all differences between us.
