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.

The deadline for entries to the European Drug Prevention Prize 2014 has now passed! A total of 56 projects applied, with submissions from Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Mexico, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Serbia Slovenia, Spain, Romania, Turkey and "The former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia''. The Pompidou Group will award the prize to the three most innovative grass-roots drug prevention projects. A jury of seven young people engaged in drug prevention work from across Europe and beyond will now assess the projects. They will meet at the Council of Europe at the end of August to make their final selection, with the support of three experts. A crucial factor in the jury's decision will be the extent to which young people are involved in the projects. They will be looking for evidence of youth participation in the development and implementation of activities, decision-making, project management and/or evaluation. The Prize will be awarded at the 16th Ministerial Conference of the Pompidou Group in November 2014. Each winning project will receive a trophy, a certificate and €5,000 to boost its activities. Good luck!
