What is the focus of Europe on Track 10

This year, we’re focusing on young people’s pivotal role in online socio-political processes and digital civic engagement, addressing the digital divide in Europe. Our mission is to raise awareness, encourage responsible digital behavior, and enhance youth engagement in European socio-political activities both online and offline. Through workshops and discussions, we aim to empower young individuals to navigate the digital world effectively, make informed online choices, and actively shape Europe’s digital future. By fostering dialogue and challenging preconceptions, we aspire to create inclusive and safe digital spaces and communities. Join us in shaping tomorrow’s digital landscape!

Charlemagne Youth Prize

The Charlemagne Prize is a prestigious European award presented annually in Aachen, Germany, since 1950. It aims to honor individuals or institutions that have made significant contributions to European unity and integration. Named after the medieval Frankish king who united much of Western Europe, the prize symbolizes the ideals of peace, understanding, and cooperation among European nations.

Our project, Europe on Track, is a prime example of the values the Charlemagne Prize celebrates. Since its inception, Europe on Track has been dedicated to fostering cross-cultural dialogue, promoting European values, and empowering young people to actively engage in shaping the future of Europe. Notably, the first edition of our project was awarded the Charlemagne Prize in 2013, recognizing its commitment to youth participation and European unity. Through our ongoing efforts, we continue to exemplify the spirit of the Charlemagne Prize by inspiring youth across Europe to embrace their role as European citizens and contribute to a more cohesive and prosperous continent.

We are deeply honored to have been awarded this year’s Austrian national round of the Charlemagne Prize. This recognition reaffirms our dedication to promoting European values and empowering young people to become active participants in shaping Europe’s future. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Charlemagne Prize committee for this honor and remain committed to advancing the ideals of European unity and integration through our work.
