It is independently organized by a youth jury consisting of volunteers, apprentices, pupils and college students aged 17 to 25. The German Federal Agency for Civic Education are looking for innovative and creative projects from all over the world that are dealing with the topic of democracy. “Democracy” does not only mean free elections and legislation but also the commitment for a colorful and vivid society.

The time span of your project can range from a day to a few months or even a few years. Projects that have already been finished cannot be longer than 15.04.2019. All types of projects are accepted- for example a youth council, a monthly cooking meet-up, a video project, the organisation of a sports event or something completely different. The application via web form is mandatory. The filled in web form is the one and only relevant document in order to select the winner. Therefore, any other information cannot be taken into account.
