Every two years, since 2004, the European Drug Prevention Prize is rewarding three innovative projects that are led by young people for young people. From the time when it was set up, almost 200 projects have been examined by a jury of 7 young persons who selected the winners. All 47 Council of Europe member States as well as Morocco, which joined the Group in July 2011, are invited to participate. The Prize 2012 will be launched in November 2011 and awarded Autumn 2012 during a Pompidou Group High Level conference.
"Crystal Scales of Justice"
Since 2005, the Council of Europe and the European Commission are organising together a competition to discover and highlight innovative and efficient practices used in European courts for court organisation or for the conduct of judicial proceedings (for example, initiatives devised by a court president, a registry, a Bar) and deserving to be drawn to the attention of policy-makers and the judicial community so as to improve the functioning of the public justice system.
