2018 winners

1st place - Worcation (Poland)

Worcation brings together young people from different countries to work on the site of Stalag VIII A, a German WW2  prisoner-of-war camp situated in Görlitz and Zgorzelec, on both sides of the river Neisse. After receiving training, the volunteers work as archaeologists or interview families of former inmates.
 

2nd place - Juvenilia (Italy) 

Juvenilia aims to raise interest in opera, ballet and theatre among the under 35s. It organises cultural exchanges in different European cities and negotiates tickets prices to make attending the performances more affordable. Participants can go backstage and meet the artists, enjoy city tours and meet like-minded people from other countries.
 

3rd place - Never arrive 2 (Malta)

Young Somali refugee and blogger Farah Abdullahi Abdi wrote two books about the frustrations  and hardships of being  a refugee in Europe. She wants to show that refugees are not here to create chaos but are ready to embrace Europe and contribute to its development. She has crossed Europe speaking  to students about her life, offering them a different picture from the one they might get from anti-immigration sources.


2018 Charlemagne Prize goes to Emmanuel Macron

On Thursday 10 May the Charlemagne Prize 2018 will be awarded  to French president Emmanuel Macron for "his passion and commitment to Europe”. Charlemagne Youth Prize winners will have the chance to meet and talk with him.
