Youth Democracy Award

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s the most dedicated project for democracy of them all?! Not only in Germany, democracy is challenged, criticized and offended. Failed exploratory talks, rising political frustration, increasing electoral success of right-wing parties, democracy needs support, especially from your side!

The jury of the Youth Democracy Award puts DEMOCRACY as the highest priority and will continue awarding the “Youth Democracy Award” in 2018, honoring projects, initiatives and activities by and for young people who do not only commit themselves for democracy, but also reveal current difficulties and challenges of democracy. Because democratic structures cannot be taken for granted, but always need to be developed further – on your own or within a group. No matter what kind of project you have created: a demonstration, a YouTube video clip, a theater play or something completely different, you can think of everything! If you commit yourself against homophobia, racism, sexism or in favor of disabled people, there are no limits to your fantasy and especially for your commitment! 

  • You are 14 up to 27 years old and organize your project mainly by yourself. You may be supported by grown-ups who work on a full-time basis.
  • You want to do social work and motivate other young people for political questions. Therefore you play an active role in your project.
  • Your project could be an (international) youth event, a political media project, a tournament, a community centre for youth or something that is totally different. We are looking for creative, innovative ideas!
  • Your project is mainly related to democratic work, due to the award’s main emphasis is on civic education. It should cause a sustainable impact on democratic structures and strengthens and improves democracy.
  • Your project could last a day, a few months or several years. But all projects mustn’t be finished before 15th April 2018.
  • Your project comes from a European country (EU and non-EU)
  • Your aims and ideals are in accord with basic democratic values.
  • A non-profit background is a must. Those projects that are financed by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung, bpb) are not allowed to apply.
