Pompidou Group - Co-operation Group to Combat Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in Drugs

The European Drug Prevention Prize was launched for the first time in 2004. It is awarded every two years to three drug prevention projects that fully involve young people, either in the development and implementation of activities, the decision-making, the project management and/or the evaluation.

The Pompidou Group is awarding this Prize to highlight good-quality drug prevention projects that have proved success in practice in involving young people. In general, it aims to encourage the development of drug prevention work in which youth is participating actively.

The projects are evaluated by a jury of seven young people advised by experts in the field of drug prevention. The prize-winners each receive a trophy, a diploma and a prize-money of €5.000.
