We can happily announce that E&M has been awarded the UK nomination to the Charlemagne Youth prize 2011! 

The Charlemagne Youth Prize is organised by the European Parliament and the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen and is awarded for projects that foster a shared sense of European identity and cooperation. Every country nominates one project (“national winner”) that then gets invited to Aachen for the European final prize.

We would like to thank the UK committee for awarding us this nomination (and for making us winners for the second year in a row!) and we look forward to representing E&M at the European final in Aachen, 31st May 2011.

We wanted to demonstrate all the progress that this project has made during the last year, and then we remembered all those Europeans who had helped us grow our community of readers and contributors, achieve the transnational adventure, run the workshop, and create the Sixth Sense. We realised that 2010/11 was a year in which the E&M project was revolutionised! 

We must thank the hundreds of dedicated authors, editors, and partners who have helped us to reach out to the whole of Europe like never before! And of course, most of all we would like to thank our readers for continually inspiring us with fantastic stories from across the continent. It's your input and interest that helps us carry on writing and sharing the many examples of how wonderfully diverse, amazing and interconnected Europe really is!  

Check out our winning summary!  

And keep your fingers crossed for us once more for the European prize. Save the date: 31st May 2011.
