European Youth Culture Award


Submit your proposal!

The European Youth Culture Award is open for everyone. The proposals can be projects (no matter by whom they are operated), initiatives, scientific work etc. The proposal can be submitted in English, in German or in French.

The submitted projects/works/initiatives must either be ongoing or must have concluded at the earliest in the calendar year preceding the year of the ceremony. Projects can not propose themselves. The proposal has to come from a non-participant party.

The submissions must not contradict the principles of “Respect! Die Stiftung”: the promotion of tolerance and open-mindedness, reduction and condemnation of violence, sexism, racism and of other totalitary and inhuman attitudes and behaviours and the promotion of democratic principles.
