Dear Friends of a Europe of the Citizens
We are delighted that the hard work of our member, New Europeans has been recognised by the Schwarzkopf Foundation.
It is a tribute to the hard work of this young organisation that they should receive this prize.
The Green Card has clearly caught the imagination of young people who want a Europe that guarantees their rights and freedoms not just today but also in the future.
It also represents the growing recognition that civil society groups, like those The European Civic Forum brings together, have an important role to play in safeguarding and promoting human rights and equalities in Europe.
