The European commission has selected our ‘EU Reporter’ project from twelve other civic participation projects that encourage action and debate on EU issues at a grass-roots level. Later this year, these projects will be awarded the "Golden Stars of active European citizenship’ in a prize ceremony in Brussels, hosted by education, training and culture commissioner, the Slovak Ján Figel'.
The 2008 Golden Stars are awarded as part of the Europe for Citizens programme. They give official recognition to initiatives that showcase co-operation, effective working methods and tangible results in the area of civic participation.

The Golden Stars award ceremony will take place on 13 November 2008 in Brussels. It will be open to the public upon registration.
