The European Drug Prevention Prize is a unique pan-European initiative of the Pompidou Group of the Council of Europe, aiming to promote youth participation in drug prevention.
Its objective is to recognise the importance of active youth participation in creating a better and healthier environment for all communities in Europe.
In the framework of the preparation of the European Drug Prevention Prize, the Pompidou Group is looking to recruit four new members for the jury. The Jury is composed of 7 young people from Pompidou Group member States. They are identified by the Secretariat of the Pompidou Group based on the proposals of the member States representatives as well as non-governmental organisations that work with young people across Europe and other parts of the world.
The deadline for the Call for Application for Jurors has been extended to May 30th 2013. For more information on the procedure and the applications, please click here:
