This award aims to reward the best projects of 2023 and inspire young people, European citizens, decision-makers and applicants of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps to have greater impact.

Why partecipate?

If your project wins you will receive:

  1. A 700 euros prize for the winning project in each category
  2. Your project featured in the promotion of the SALTO Awards winners and as best practice on SALTO communication channels and during events
  3. An invitation to the “Youth Participation in Democratic Life” event and the SALTO Awards Ceremony in October 2023 in Lublin, Poland, European Youth Capital!
