Three projects from Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey were awarded the Pompidou Group’s 2018 European Prevention Prize.
Prize winners in 2018 – Civil Life Association in Turkey, Workshop of Life in Greece and Take Me in Your Village in Bulgaria – were selected out of 18 candidate projects. Special mention was given to the project “Flash Mob” of Israel.
First launched in 2004 by the Council of Europe’s drug policy platform known as the Pompidou Group, the European Prevention Prize is awarded every two years to highlight excellent drug prevention projects that have proved successful in involving young people. A jury of seven young people (aged between 16 and 21 at the time of their appointment) evaluated candidates and awarded the three winners a trophy, a diploma and prize-money of €5.000.
