The Pompidou Group calls for youth projects to submit applications for the 2021 edition of the European Drug Prevention Prize. Applications should be submitted using the below application form and respecting the eligibility criteria and procedures detailed in the document ‘Concept, rules, procedures’. The deadline for applications is 30 November 2020.
Launched in 2004, the Prevention Prize is awarded to highlight outstanding drug prevention projects that have proved successful in involving young people in their design, implementation and evaluation. It aims to increase awareness of the importance of active youth participation in reducing drug-related harm and creating healthier citizens and communities across Europe. It also seeks to recognise quality drug prevention that is innovative and managed by young people, for young people.
The three winning projects of the last edition in 2018 were Take me in your village (Bulgaria), Workshop for Life (Greece) and Responsible Youth (Turkey). In recognition of their work, these projects were awarded a trophy, diploma and prize money during the 17th Ministerial Conference of the Pompidou Group in Stavanger, Norway.
