ECF president nominated in the European Citizen’s Prize Chancellery

The Bureau of European Parliament unveiled the composition of the new European citizen’s prize Chancellery, in a meeting on 13 March 2017.

Since 2008 the Parliament awards the European Citizen’s Prize every year to projects and initiatives that facilitate cross-border cooperation or promote mutual understanding within the EU. The prize, which has symbolic value, is also intended to acknowledge the work of those who through their day-to-day activities promote European values. Each year, the Prize is awarded to people (maximum of 50) or groups in regard to the suggestions of members of the European Parliament.

A new Chancellery, the governing body for the issuance of the European citizen’s prize, is nominated at every start of a new term of the European Parliament and at every mid-term.

The composition of the current Chancellery:

Chancellor: Sylvie GUILLAUME, vice-president of the European Parliament

Four vice-presidents of the European Parliament: Ryszard CZARNECKI, Pavel TELIČKA,  Ildikó GÁLL-PELCZ, Dimitrios PAPADIMOULIS

Two former presidents of the European Parliament: Hans-Gert PÖTTERING and Enrique BARÓN CRESPO

Two distinguished figures: Jean Marc ROIRANT, president of the European Civic Forum and of Civil Society Europe and Luis Alvarado MARTINEZ, president of the European Youth Forum
