As part of the EU/UK Stronger Together programme, we are launching a Stronger Together for a Better World Competition to highlight the potential for co-operation between young people in the UK and EU.
We invite young people aged 18–30 to creatively express the concept of ‘Togetherness’ and the added value of collaboration on the topics of peace, democracy, equality, solidarity and sustainable development between youth in the UK and the EU. Create a piece of work of your choice – a photo, video, podcast, article, installation, painting etc. – and join our community of young people across the EU and the UK!
About Stronger Together for a Better World
We work with young activists aged 18–30 from across the UK and EU through community workshops, joint events and training so as to promote shared fundamental values and give prominence to the role of youth in bringing about positive change, social cohesion and peace.
- community workshops for young people in Ireland and Northern Ireland to design community-led public space interventions
- a competition involving podcasting, photography, video making, article writing and visual creation to show what young people from the EU and the UK can achieve together.
The finalists will attend the final event in London in November 2024
- Open to young people between the ages of 18 to 30 years
- Applicants should be across the EU and UK
A jury panel consisting of representatives from the British Council, the European Movement International and the European Commission will select 16 entries that will feature in an exhibition planned to take place in London in May 2024. Winners of the competition will be invited to the final event in London in November 2024.
Entries will be assessed against the following criteria:
- The message and how clearly it is communicated.
