Dutch Members of European Parliament congratulate CampusEurope for winning Dutch nomination at European Charlemagne Youth Prize 2015

On Tuesday 14 April, the team of CampusEurope, a European student television network founded in Maastricht, was awarded at the European Parliament in Brussels by two Dutch Members of the European Parliament, Jan Huitema and Jeroen Lenaers, for winning the Dutch nomination at the European Charlemagne Youth Prize 2015. The final winner of the European Charlemagne Youth Prize will be announced in Aachen on Tuesday 12 May.

The team was welcomed very friendly not only by the MEPs, but also by last year’s winner of the prize and representatives of the European Parliament’s office in The Hague. Receiving an exclusive tour through the European Parliament, and holding interesting conversations with the MEPs (Did you know that Jeroen Lenaers studied at Fasos, too?), even Martin Schulz quickly walked by during the preparation of the final picture. All in all, it was a wonderful day for CampusEurope. Let’s keep crossing the fingers for the final round of the European Charlemagne Youth Prize!

And in case you don’t know CampusEurope, let us shortly introduce ourselves:

CampusEurope is a project started by students and alumni of Maastricht University, and brings together student televisions and young authors from all over Europe. All with the aim to create a truly European media platform for our young generation. We currently work together with ten student television stations from different countries to produce a monthly show, and publish numerous articles on the side.

We work mainly on European affairs, issues which young people in particular face, and subjects that we think lack attention. Our episodes deal with subjects such as trust of young Europeans in the EU, the Erasmus program or the migration of young people in Europe due to the economic crisis. Campus Europe wants to catch the voices and opinions of the continents future generations. The project wants to give them a platform where they can deal with common issues, no matter which country in Europe they are from. CampusEurope helps to connect people from all over the continent, to build new interlinkages between Europe’s future generations, and to preserve the European dream of a diverse yet united people.

What is the European Charlemagne Youth Prize?

The European Charlemagne Youth Prize aims at enthusiastic young people who help to foster and strengthen European integration through voluntary projects. The prize is thus awarded to projects that foster mutual understanding, promote the development of a shared sense of European identity, and that offer practical examples of Europeans living together. The Prize is awarded jointly by the European Parliament and the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen.
