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, Israel, Morocco, observer States as well as participating countries in the Mediterranean network for co-operation on drugs and addictions (MedNET) are invited to participate.
"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.
