10 projects have been selected to each receive a Golden Star, a recognition of the active participation and the citizen-centred efforts, demonstrated in such diverse projects as those seeking to accommodate the intercultural dialogue between different peoples or others that offer learning opportunities and awareness-raising on European integration issues. The awards ceremony will take place in Brussels early November.

The awards are delivered within the framework of the "Europe for Citizens" programme, a new programme that responds to the need of enhancing citizen participation in the construction of Europe. The awarded projects seek to represent the best efforts in the field while at the same time their visibility will support and strengthen the thematic approach of the new programme.
