'Laureate of the Future' Award
An EYT initiative supportig young talent by providing funding and mentorship to young people across Europe with amazing ideas for social change projects.
We're mobilising young people in Europe to address the most pressing issues in their communities to advance inclusion. From Black Lives Matter to Climate Change, young people are at the forefront championing change, and we want to amplify this through our campaign for an inclusive Europe.
Ultimately, our goal is to cultivate Laureates of the Future that, with our help, can turn their social action ideas into successful projects that promote inclusion and advance peace. Thanks to support from the Winchester Rotary Club, the PeaceJam European Youth Team has created the ‘Laureate of the Future Programme’ which offers young people aged 14-26, the opportunity to apply for a micro-grant up to the value of €200 to support their social action ideas.
10 successful social action projects were selected at the Pan-European PeaceJam Conference and received:
-Financial support to the amount of €200 per project
-Access to mentoring throughout the phases of your project
-Project coaching from Jody Williams, 1997 Nobel Peace Laureate, through a Q&A discussion at PeaceJam Pan-European Online Youth Conference.
